Wow! Thank you Hywela!
I am very excited to be a member. I'm looking forward to learning a lot! I'm a newbie, so my steps at first will be small, but it won't take me long to make those steps bigger :)
Thank you, Hywela! I admit I'm a bit awww struck. I haven't been published so it's a bit intimidating. Plus, I get nervous wondering if I'm asking a stupid question. Hopefully, in time this will be old hat to me.
You said - this makes me ashamed to be human.
I couldn't agree with you more.
Until some people stop treating animals like lifeless objects - well, even if they do, there will always be those who will take out their sadistic perversions on the helpless.
Several years ago, I had a greyhound that had been retired from the track. She was not abused, just useless as a racedog because she did not have the necessary drive to win. Lucky for me, she was a simply awesome companion.
Yes, I believe that horses are some of God's greatest work. How can you look on them and not smile? Sadly, some people don't have the same respect for our four-legged friends. I blogged this after seeing a picture on the internet. The Monsters Among Us
CAUTION!! Don't read this is you are sqeamish or have a weak stomach. I felt it was necessary that someone speak out for these poor animals. This happened in Connecticut no less.
Thanks so much for the warm welcome. I don't doubt that we're friends on my space. I have so many! Way more than I did in High School..LOL. I love your horses. I had a horse when I was 16. I often think about taking up riding again. It's just so.... natural and connecting.
