This is one of my favourite photographs. I love the way the horse looks totally blissed out by the music. It reminds me of our old family dog, a Jack Russell called Fudge. He was a music fan too. Everyday, when I practised the piano or the flute, Fudge would come in, throw himself down by the fire and listen. Occasionally, he would join in.
He especially enjoyed the saxophone. As I opened the case and prepared the reed in the mouthpiece, Fudge would quake in anticipation, shivers of joy running through his body. And then I would play and he would sing. Our duets were legendary. He would howl along with the high notes and growl with the low notes.
It was a wonder I could keep a straight face and keep playing. Goodness knows what the neighbours thought 😉
Do you have an animal friend in your life? How do you share the joy?
