His Spirit Was Stolen
I went this morning to watch a Wild Horse and Burro Auction here in Southwest Louisiana. I remember watching a small herd of the horses a couple of years ago in Upper Nevada. I think back how majestic and free they looked running across a hillside.
This morning I found a group of animals who's spirits had long since been taken from them. They stood motionless, almost in a drugged state.
The saddest part is that I also expected a large response from the local ranchers in our area due to their obvious love of Horses. There was a total of 3 other people there and only 2 of the horses had even been bid on.
I walked away very sad and thinking to myself how could we ever convince ourselves that we are "saving" them by doing this to them.
