Why we are Here!
Our intent, here at Straight from the Horse’s Heart, is not simply to promote the book by the same name (whose profits go to Habitat for Horses) but to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves.
Amongst these pages of posts you will find good news and a whole lot of “not so good news” for our equine companions. News stories on the plight of our native wild horses, rescue, horse slaughter, neglect and politics as they relate to horses will be posted, along with stories and “op-eds” from the book’s author R.T. Fitch, and assorted other writers and parties tied to improving the welfare of our American equines.
What started out as a simple blog to promote the message of the plight of our U.S. horses has turned into a focal point for issues in the equine community.
So grab your keyboard, fasten your seat belt and hang on as we take you onto the real-time battlefield of Equine Welfare, the ride could get bumpy.
