Six months ago on December 20, 2012 a horse-in-the-pasture© was my inspiration for writing a short story. You can read it on this link and find out what happened when I was sixteen years old. Today I decided to take a break from editing, Book 2 in the trilogy, and drive over to the pasture for a visit. There’s where I found, not one, but two horses grazing on grass. When they saw me, they eagerly pranced over to greet me. I immediately recognized the butterfly mark on my friend’s face, but I’m puzzled about why he is wearing a blinder.
Note: DawnSeeker, from Soul Horse Ride, has agreed to be our Horse Expert about this puzzling blinder that is actually called a “fly mask”. Scan down to the bottom of the comments section and read some interesting facts about their purpose. Thank you, Dawn, for commenting and the information. Much appreciated.
“I whispered over the fence, “I’ve decided to call you Metamorphosis.”
He nodded his head with approval and smiled.
Note: Metamorphosis of the butterfly symbolizes significant change in the course of one’s life, personality or way of thinking.
