Life Of A Horse


user img

the bit

the kick

the spur

the whip




broken necks in horse races

while they look on bettors' faces


pulling crushing loads

in bullfights gored

dying in stable fires

hunger deaths from being ignored


driven into rivers in which they drown

falling down mountainsides

goaded to heart attack deaths

gamblers poison their insides


confined in barn stalls

smashed by Central Park cars

in wars blown apart

by cruel Bonapartes

Dang that's a sad picture to see! Up the street from me is a horse racetrack. Can't say I appreciate the way they are kept either.

Good read.

Never took the time realize how bad horses have actually had it.
