I like horses. I feel them as the few left really free animals on this planet. Even in captivity they are free! Free spirits! How do you feel about that?

Imagine the picture. A group of 12 horses, different colours, running through an area full with low vegetation, leaving their steaming and hearing their steps tripping and tripping and seeing the nerves on their bodies to go wild!

I like horses too, I love to see them in the paddocks around here just having their freedom, but I do not like them being used for racing, so I choose not to watch the races.

I hate racings too. Do you know that if during a race a horse has strained an angle or broke a leg is killed afterwards?

I love horses, and I hate that people remove their free spirit.

Yes, it is very bad to make these animals (also lots of others) to be used in a way they don't deserve to.

I like to see them running free. I dislike the idea of putting a saddle on them. It is like putting a lion in a cage. That's not right, correct?

Free creatures, mostly dominated by the cruel man. I wish they will make a revolution one day.

Yes, Horses are wonderful! Free Spirited! Strong, and very smart! ... My Dad and I have cared for and raised horses for a long time. I live on a horse farm. I remember he adopted 15 of them from the adopt a horse program, and they used to stampede up and down the hills and run up and down the marsh and woods. He had to sell them as they got to hard for Dad and I and the family to all take care of after Dad injured his shoulder and I broke my arm and shoulder... I miss listening to them stampeded during the pressure changes, and running and dodging them at times when I was wandering the woods and marsh, and they decided to bug me for molasses, or when I discovered they thought I was giving them oats as I was not realising they were chasing me around for their oats, and would spill all my nuts I gathered in their pail all over :) .. Awesome to have so many around, they are free spirits and all have their own personalities... I was blessed to be able to pet and make a connection with the one horse that was so wild no one else could even get within three feet from her. Bonnio the wild buckskin, she was awesome. My Dad sold them to a rich man from Chicago who uses them as lawn ornaments just pays someone to feed them and care for them, as the horses live out on his pastures for free without being tamed or mess with. I remember the day I helped get them into the trailer, the one stud reared up and nearly came down on my head good thing I had string in my hand I spun in the air just enough to spook him out so when he came down of his rearing up he did not get me in the head and turned away from me, and gave me enough time to jump backwards out of the way of his sharp hooves. I will miss that spunky one.. But boy was he a challenge... I love horses... And they truely are awesome animals we can learn alot from. - DNatureofDTrain
