When I was about four, I loved cartoon movies. I grew attached to a certain horse in a cartoon-movie, called Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Filled with sappy Bryan Adams songs it was a wild-west horse story. Over and over again, I always asked for this movie. My parents begged me to watch anything but Spirit. I watched this movie so many times, I just loved Spirit. I can’t believe my parents even put up with me.
On Christmas day, when I saw the stuffed animal version of Spirit the horse, large and cuddly and bigger than me, he became my favorite toy instantly. Spirit, the horse! I had never met a real horse, but somehow, I connected with this stuffed animal and he became my favorite toy. I kept Spirit on my bed for many years. For my 5th birthday, I had a horse party. I had Spirit on my mind. Weird.
