A few months ago, Kaheka, a lovely long legged thoroughbred, was playing across a gate with another horse. I was busily doing chores but had time to smile at the two and their new and friendly way of interacting. I normally keep a hefty stake propped against the old wooden gate for added strength as the horses bump against it during their bantering. This time Kaheka got a little rambunctious with his passionate play and accidentally knocked the stake down. As I walked past him from the rear, he lowered his head and turned it around coyly to look at me, sneaking a peek like a mischievous kid, looking through long locks of hair to check if mom was watching. She was. He said,” uh-oh.” I laughed and said flippantly, “Kaheka, ya better put that back up,” and I walked on.
