R.I.P. Patrick Swayze

I got a little teary at the news of Patrick Swayze's death this morning, though I'm not entirely sure why.  I was never obsessed with him as many girls were.  I never thought he was much of an actor.  Though I admit he did floor me with his performance in Donnie Darko as Jim Cunningham, the motivational speaker and closet pedophile. 

But I suppose I did love him simply because he was so involved with his Arabians throughout his life.  I have a soft spot for anyone who loves horses, and in particular Arabians, since that's the breed I grew up around.  So, here's to the tremendous love and gentleness of Patrick Swayze's spirit -- it's on full display here in this video of him showing a baby halter horse.
