Our intent, here at Straight from the Horse’s Heart, is not simply to promote the book by the same name but to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves.
Among 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 & burros, 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.
