I wake up in my bed. My loving wife, Mildreth is to my right. My beautiful Lipizzaner stallion, my equestrian lover of four legs, used to lie to my left. Mildreth and I have been married for ten years, but for many of those years our love waned. Then, three years ago, we acquired a lovely horse by the name of Snowflame. Snowflame gave new purpose to my marriage with Mildreth, and for a while we were polyamorous lovers with a beautiful horse - and we felt blessed.
