Memorial Day For Equines

I am reblogging this interesting post on horses that have served their country.

The Green Horseman

Memorial Day in the United States takes place on the last Monday in May to honor and remember the fallen soldiers of our armed forces.  While we honor our fallen we must also remember that humans were not the only ones who served during wartime.

Today’s society uses horses in entertainment, sport, and pleasure.  Horses have become pets, therapy animals, athletes in many sports, working ranch horses, and even common attractions for the city-slicker looking to take a weekend horseback ride.  Horses are given stalls and abundant turnout (mostly).  Some horses have better nutrition than most humans.  There are acupuncturists, massage therapists, chiropractors, farriers, vets, and dentists that all work on horses.  There are grooms, trainers, riding instructors, breeders, dealers, and trail guides who all count on horses for their income.
