Could a Donkey Love An Elephant (Part 3)

Lifting his cup, Roger said, “When you’re not protesting our next President, what do you do with your time?”

Julie smirked about the way he asked but answered him. “I’m an equine dental technician. I help horses all over the state keep their healthy smiles. How about you Roger?”

“Horses? That sounds interesting. I am a CPA at a firm in New Jersey.”

“He won’t be our next President you know. He cannot if women’s rights are to move forward.”

Roger hadn’t been following women’s rights in the news but he knew they strongly opposed the Republican platform. Right now he wanted to move their conversation away from their political differences.

“I think for now we should agree to disagree. I want hear about your work with horses. Why teeth?”

“Agreed.” Julie took a sip of her latte and told him about the world of equine medical services. She found she liked this man and want to get to know him.

“Horses begin cutting teeth within a week of birth.  Their teeth are one of the most important aspects of their health.  I’ve been around horses my entire life so it was a nature progressing for me.”

“I’ve never ridden a horse.”

“I think we need to remedy that.  You should come out to my family’s stables soon.”

  1. I like that. Moving away from the politics and they see they like each other.

    I have a few photos of one of these horses having treatment from an Equine Dental Technician. It looks painful, but it isn’t.
