The horses eye the man suspiciously, immediately aware of his pent-up anger. They remain on the periphery until the man starts to talk about his real feelings regarding his life and his friendships. Only then do they come closer.

As they walk away, Isra yawns several times. Horses only yawn to release stress and tension. “She took on some of his tension, and then released it,” explains Jewitt. “Unexpressed fear and uncontrollable expressions of anger are often stable mates — horses teach us that there is release in expressing these feelings in healthy ways, rather than keeping them bottled up.”
