Süddeutsches Kaltblut, South German draught horse (by karendebler)

I don't usually ride English. More western riding for me. But I have to admit, this is really pretty!

Wild Horses - they need the right to the land that was given to them. They don't need to be held in feed-lot pins.

    Funny thing is the "feed lots and pens" were started as a conservation method to "save the wild horses" I was alive then and I remember. AS usual when people get all in a tissy and start a movement it just made the situation worse. Before the act to save the horses in the seventies the herds were left in place, culled of weak animals for slaughter, a few were captured for use and the majority were left in place free. Now they are rounded up by the hundreds for "adoption" and since most are unusable and use for slaughter out of the question the government feeds thousands in nasty pens for life. Sad all the way around. The fact is the horses do have to be managed but no kill management does not work and so the current situation is much worse than before the Government got involved...kinda like everything the Government tries to fix.

    It is a tough thing all the way around. Do you remember that in 1989-2001 a man rode a mustang from California to Florida? I have that horse now, have had him for close to 13 years. The truth is this. Jesse (the horse) is great, but he is still dangerous to other horses under some circumstances. God and nature made him to fight to the death any horse who will not submit to him (or run away). I am his forever home, but I have to provide space, three acres, and a friend with his own two acres, and a strong fence between them. Not all wild horses are like this, but many are really difficult to have and keep well. I wish I had some magic answer!
