Most of us urbanite city dwellers need no reason to see a horse ever in our lifetime, they are outmoded as a means of transportation or agricultural locomotion and as pets are the equivelent of keeping a hemi-duelie pickup truck for frugal solo commuting. Let the horse fall from our sight so they may be harvested for use in pet food and brushes.

Cruel post! A horse. like most of us, not you, has feelings, believe it, or not.
I grew up in Atlantic City and could never see the sense of making some poor animal leap into a pool with a woman on its back as a crowd pleaser.
Thought crossed my mind, the animal could easily break its legs from such a height.
How whould you like to be made to jump from such a height with someone on YOUR back? Huh?
Primative!

I really don't grasp what the hell your post means, really!
But I would bet my last dime that when you were a kid, you would get your kicks out of pulling the wings off of flys, or hold a magnifying glass over an ant hill to allow the hot rays of the sun down to where these helpless creatures live, just to fry them and get your laughs.
It is a known fact that animal abusers become human abusers.
Have you crossed that threshold yet, pal?
