Horses put up mirrors to our souls, allowing us to view and evaluate ourselves in an ever forgiving, non-judgmental way. I find it very interesting how we, as people, tend to build from nothing. We take few, and turn it into many. Slave owners gave us butcher scraps, and we turned it into soul food. We take our pain and sorrows and turn it into beautiful works of art and music. We can take a word that has a derogatory history and turn it into something we instead associate with beauty. I take horses that are not worth anything to anyone, and turn them into something useful, so that they may have a chance at a consistent, long positive life.
