“Curiosity is a sign of courage,” my trainer said, hushing my correction. Enthusiastic praise for my colt chasing her dog along a fence line. I’m older now than my trainer was then, but this longear’s weathered and wind-burnt face is donkey years older than both of us. Undeniable, I recognize that eye and the courage required to approach a predator with brisk steps, ears flat, and jaw wide open in a toothless screaming bray.
