Casey lives at the foothills of the Rockies and spoke to me about her connection with her new shire stallion William. Casey knows her horses well, but she is especially fond of William, whom she says is so sensitive to her emotions and responds to her therapeutic touch when he is anxious. One of many stories for the One Language Project which explores the common emotional language we share with other species and asks "what would the world be like if humans viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? Can we become better stewards through seeing our commonality?"
