Your mom and dad, even your grandma and grandpa all had one. That teddy bear, doll or blanket, the toy that went with them everywhere. Child development experts call these toys, which help children navigate new situations, transitional objects. They were simply their best friends. I want to be your best friend. I don’t want your best friend to be your cell phone. I you to learn what an amazing tool the internet is, but it’s not a friend.
There’s an app you can play and it was made to help you use your voice. To speak with words, not your thumbs. To play, by moving your whole body, not by playing a video game on the internet.
We horses talk with our eyes and nose. I can even hear your heartbeat. We are very advanced communicators. We talk to each other with more of our senses than any mammal on this planet.
I know if you’re scared, then I need to be scared too. It’s how we’ve survived. There is power in a herd of us. We teach each other. We learn together. We horses protect and nurture each other. Together we are strong.
Do you just want me? Even if you are twenty-three, instead
of three, go ahead and buy me. I am a perfect snuggly friend,
no matter your age.
