They Do It All

I cannot think of an animal that is as widely used or more versatile than the horse.  I accept that statement comes from a completely biased place, but seriously I could not even begin to count all of the purposes people have partnered with horses on: transportation, soldiers, dressage, polo, endurance, trails, hunter, cross country, therapy, companion.  The list could go on and on, and now they are factory workers:

It’s a cute video, but, horses being in factories really is not all that much of a stretch.  They’ve been used in mines and prior to motorized vehicles someone had to move the manufactured goods around.

They are amazing really.  This animal has been put in every human situation you could think of, they’ve been domesticated and bred over and over and over again and yet…when you look at one you can still see that little bit of wild deep down in its soul.  I can think of no other animal that has endured, adapted and yet stayed authentic to itself like the horse has.  A truly amazing animal.
