Jamie, one of our Ranch kids, was at the barn one day to spend time with her horse, Starburst. She wasn't in the best of moods, and became even more frustrated when Starburst seemed standoffish. Her therapist recommended they sit down and talk quietly for a bit. The therapist told Jaimie that Starburst had had a difficult past. She suspected Starburst had been neglected by a former owner. Because of that, she sometimes did things in her own way and in her own time.
Quietly, Jaimie looked at Starburst and said, "I guess Starburst and I have a lot in common."
Moments later, Starburst approached and brought her head close to Jaimie's. From that day on, Jaimie and Starburst had a very special bond. And Jaimie is certain that Starburst doesn't feel so alone anymore.
