It’s hard to follow up a post like Vigil with something light and happy, but that’s life: a thorough mishmash of beautiful, awful, lovely, ugly, sweet and bitter all the time.
I was recently interviewed by author (and dear friend) Angela Dorsey. It was a fun diversion from all the things going on my my life right now.
My favourite question was “What kind of horse would you be?” (very fitting coming from her half-human/half-equine soul!). And in light of what I just wrote here about life, I’d amend my answer—still Pinto, absolutely (I was obsessed with Western movies and correct me if I’m wrong, but a lot of the tough little Indian ponies were Pintos*, weren’t they?), just for more elaborate reasons. Pintos aren’t generally considered glamorous or gorgeous by most horsey standards, but they are tough—sure-footed, fleet little beasts that thrive in trying times and severe climates.
If you’d like to read the full interview, pop by Angela’s great blog, here.
I’d love to read some other writers’ takes on what horse they’d like to be . . .
*I’m sort of right: Apparently Pintos aren’t exactly the same as the Indian ponies, but they share a direct lineage and similar qualities.
