Misty's Monday Muse

From the horse's mouth; Misty shares a thought to start the week.

"A dog may be man's best friend, but the horse wrote history." ~ Author unknown.

We carried your warriors into battle. We worked your fields. We powered your conveyances. We lifted your burdens. We died for your causes. We ask little in return: food, shelter, a life well lived, a death with dignity. The very things we helped you achieve.


  1. How beautiful.
    You know, I thought about something along those lines a while ago, following up on the "abuse at show"- posts on Mugwump Chronicles (don't know if you followed it or not), but I couldn't formulate my thoughts well enough to put it down.
    Now you did it for me. Thank you.

  2. Thanks HorseOfCourse. I do recall the Fugly post. I stopped by a show last year and was disgusted at the poor sportsmanship and behavior I saw there.
