Renowned actor, Johnathan Michaels, shared a heartfelt account of the extraordinary connection he formed with an abused horse.
Majestic, a once fierce and untamed stallion, entered Johnathan’s life when he acquired him. The stallion was considered unbreakable, a testament to the brutal treatment he had endured.
“The previous owners resorted to cruel methods, subjecting him to beatings and restraining his head tightly between two posts, leaving him without sustenance for an agonizing four weeks,” Johnathan revealed.
Yet, Majestic refused to yield.
After bringing him to his estate, Majestic dashed through five layers of fence within moments of his arrival. He would bite and strike anyone who approached him too closely.
“My approach was never about breaking him… I had to earn his trust,” Johnathan clarified, emphasizing the American spirit of patience and perseverance. Day after day, for endless hours, I devoted myself to cultivating a deep and meaningful relationship with that horse who had suffered abuse. Love triumphed, and after two arduous years, Majestic finally allowed me to ride him. Whenever I stepped out, Majestic would shower me with affectionate kisses on my forehead. Their depth of connection was something only equine enthusiasts could truly comprehend.”
Therefore, when the time came for Johnathan to bid farewell, he deemed it fitting to let Majestic have his final moment.
“This is Majestic’s parting kiss,” Johnathan whispered, as the world witnessed their profound bond.
In sharing this story, Johnathan hopes to raise awareness about the enduring resilience of abused animals and the transformative power of love and compassion.
