There’s More to Life than Boxes: a fable

Horsewoman

Horse_Woman

Horsewoman is half horse half human.  There are few of her kind left and she used to be quite shy and fearful of humans. Then one day she met an Artist. The Artist talked of how lovely Horsewoman was, how rare, how special and beautiful.  They have travelled together ever since.

The Artist paints Horsewoman everywhere.  They sell the paintings and live off the proceeds; Horsewoman has become something of a local celebrity.   People come far and wide to ask her about their horses and how best to treat them.  One day she hopes to open a horse sanctuary, where her people can flourish and help their horse and human cousins to better understand one another.
