“In riding a horse, we borrow freedom,” I love this quote by Helen Thompson. I have this quote written in stone displayed in a special place in my house. If, like me, you are a horse lover, you might wonder why anyone would want to hurt, let alone kill wild horses? I was quite saddened to see that a bow hunter had killed a wild stallion somewhere in Australia. As I live in California, I could not track down and confirm a reliable news source to substantiate this story on the death of a wild Brumbie horse, so please keep that in mind as you read my thoughts on the topic.
