Horses play a central role in both the lyrics and the music video of Reba McEntire's song, "Just Like Them Horses."

The song also appears on Reba's newest album, Love Somebody.
Horses are featured prominently in this breathtaking video. The black and white filming makes the beautiful details of each horse even more notable. You can't help but love the freedom that the horses embody as they move about as a herd, and the slow-motion scenes help to further bring the beauty and elegance of the horse to light.

The lyrics are a touching tribute to the difficulty of letting a loved one go.
