Look at this car from the 1950s . No horse could have those colors.
Oh…yes they could! Look at this!
What about this?
What about the coaches that took groups of people from one place to another like this colorful bus?
Horses drew “bus” carriages as well .
What about the heavy duty transport like this truck?
I think these horses would have been able to handle heavy loads.
But truth be told I believe that horses are better off now than they were in the days when they were relied upon to transport people and goods. Often they were over worked and underfed and their life was not a good one. I believe that now when horses are mainly used for sport they are better off. In the developing world there are still many equines working in very hard conditions. This is why I support The Brooke.The Brooke is an organisation that helps working equines in many developing countries . It is not a rescue. They educate owners about how to best care for their horses, donkeys or mules. The Brooke knows that entire families rely on their animals. They use local vets, who will speak the language of the owners, and understand the practices of animal care in that country.
Please watch this video. It will give you a good idea of how the Brooke is helping.
I am so grateful for the Brooke. Thanks for reading this post.
