“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.

“My apologies as I am not waxing political on you here, although our current President has done NOTHING to help our horses, but it is difficult to find good equine news to share with you on Sunday. There are a lot of things that we need to accomplish over the next 48 hours but for today, this is a story of a woman who sought out horses, late in life, and they healed her in a way that only horses can. This is success story and we as advocates are fortunate that someone in the political spotlight is pro-horse and understands the spiritual connection that we share with our equine partners. Politics aside, Ann Romney’s story is one of success and could even help to elevate our nation’s understanding and appreciation for the American horse, both wild and domestic, that we love and know so well. Have a great Sunday as tomorrow it is back to work. Be safe and keep the faith.” ~ R.T.
