How Horses Took Over North America (Twice)

“Now before everyone goes nuts on me, please take a deep breath and sit back. This PBS film is a really great story of the evolution of our beloved Equus…AND it validates and verifies what we all have been saying that world’s horses origins come from right here in North America. Now on the issue that Europeans brought them back to this country, I am not 100% sold on that theory.
My Ute friends tell me of times long before the Whiteman showed up that their ancestors worked with horses, for as long as their legends go back. Likewise, there have been reports that several small herds may have survived the great extinction event of 10,000 years ago so I, personally, lean towards the unproven theory that there is a chance that the horse never completely disappeared from North America.
Did the early explorers bring horses over and have an impact on the wild population, but of course, you can see the Spanish influence in Cloud’s herd. But are the horses from across the pond the exclusive source to our current wild equines? Me thinks not. Enjoy the video…it has a lot to offer the lover of horses and donkeys.” ~ R.T.

Jane Goodall says ‘Disrespect for Animals’ caused Pandemic

“Many thanks to Debbie Coffey for bringing this to my attention.  Terry and I have always looked upon mankind as being a pandemic waging war against the living earth.  We are like a virus, infecting, consuming and killing everything within our path…we are the most dangerous animal that lives on this planet because we not only eat, consume and kill every living thing on Mother Earth but we strip her of her resources and suck the very life out of her soul.  Not a good Easter message but it is time for new beginnings.

This current pandemic is a warning and a shot across our bow.  It was born in the cruelty of China’s wet markets, that I have personally and sadly witnessed, and is meant as wake-up call.  Mother Earth is pissed and in the end she will prevail.  Now would be a good time to slip back into our intended roles and treat our co-inhabitants of this planet, and the planet herself, with the respect and dignity that they deserve.  We are NOT King of the Hill, instead we are the scourge that pollutes and consumes the valley below.  Let’s clean it up!” ~ R.T.
