I have decided that Zum is an empath. Human empaths can feel other people’s emotions intensely. I have met a few human empaths. Many of them have to contract their awareness and escape into addictions, selfishness and indifference to cope with the waves of feelings constantly coming at them from others. They don’t realize that being empathic is a gift and must be protected. A true empath needs to be surrounded with harmony, expansion and peace. As long as I keep Zum inspired, interested and happy, he is an amazing and very agreeable horse!
