and now, for our forgotten veterans...


Grey Horse Matters said...

Look back at our struggle for freedom,
Trace our present day's strength to its source,
And you'll find that our pathway to glory,
Is strewn with the bones of the horse.

i'm going with a favorite quote too:

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.

~Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954

Our country was built on the backs of horses - we never could have done it without them. :)

Love both quotes - especially jme's... personal fave. Thanks for posting this billie :)

Thanks to all of you for the quotes and good thoughts. I feel we owe horses a lot more than they get when it comes to thanks and gratitude for how much they do for us, and have done for us, over the course of many many years in history.
