    by Jrpopfan | 18th of July, 2017

    Here is a horse who lives with his friends in a neighborhood. I would call him a clever horse Hans. Why? He cannot do arithmetic or talk in a human voice, but his clever gaze or his manner to come to greet me makes his actions in a way very humane. At these moments I talk... More
