The rhythm of her day begins.
Eyes open wide, front legs stretch out, then back. Eyes close, her neck lengthens as she yawns to the sky. Her head shakes, and the shock wave moves along her body. Shoulders, belly, and then tail trace circles in the air.
As she springs forward, now fully awake, the glitter of fur flies up into the morning light before drifting back to ground.
