Alyssa did a post talking about what songs remind her of her horses and why. When she told me about writing it, I laughed and told her that Courage came with a song, the homage to his barn name at the track, "big papa":
Cuna had a really obvious one too.
But the obvious choice isn't always the right one. Cuna's song was really this:
I realize it's a lot more obscure, but bear with me. Jugni is an Indian idea, referencing a firefly, or "the essence of life". Essentially, an innocent character that reveals a much greater truth, almost a totem of an idea. Cuna was my rock, but more than that, my guiding light. He had this way of just knowing about everything and those big expressive eyes of his didn't need poetry to express themselves. This song captures that idea (and I apologize to those that can't relate to Hindi music).
Even now, I can't listen to it without crying.
My relationship with Courage isn't like what I had with Cuna. I still love the little guy, but he's less the embodiment of everything I need and more my partner in crime. He's a cocky little bastard. He's gorgeous and he knows it. And yes, he would absolutely say, "If you want the world, I suggest you come with me."
So there you go. The soundtrack of my horses. I guess I left out Izzy. I'm sure there's a song called "homewrecker" or "I'm a Raging Bitch" or something like that out there. Just think of her when you hear it.
I think this should be a blog hop. Who else has a song for their horse? What is it? I'm usually annoyed by videos (and rarely watch them, guess I fail at the internet), but I'm loving this idea.
