Horse: Emberis [link]
"... big ship."
Keith watched the cruise liner sail past the dock. A small tender craft would come to pick up him and his horse, as their dock was far too small to provide berth for such a massive ship. Emberis nuzzled his shoulder and snorted. His ears were pricked and one hind hoof stamped with impatience. He could sense adventure, and after too long relegated to the retirement pasture he was ready to strut his stuff again.
Keith laughed and rubbed his velvet-soft white nose. He traced the red diamond between the big stallion's nostrils. Emberis would never be shown again, nor would he father any more foals, but Keith thought it was high time the stallion had a little pampering anyway. This equine cruise seemed just the thing: a safe, playful environment where he could rub shoulders with other horse and rider teams, and where Emberis could be treated like the stable king he was. Perhapse...
Keith let himself laugh. Perhaps Emberis's stud days were not over yet, and perhaps his own may be starting soon... a cruise ship was not a bad place to meet a soul mate...
