Short story from “Straight from the Horse’s Heart” by R.T. Fitch “It’s been a few years, but we now we have ‘Dumb and Dumber’ living next door and yup, they were inconsiderate enough to light off exploding skyrockets over our back pasture, last night or evening as it […]
Usually, here at Straight from the Horse’s Heart, on Christmas Day I tend to wax a bit sappy and look back at Christmas’ past and emotional moments that bear meaning and substance. Hence, over the past 10 years I have leaned on my Christmas’ spent in China where […]
“I firmly believe that all native wild horses should be just that, wild. But when the captured are adopted, cared for and loved versus illegally shipped across our borders to go to slaughter, then that’s a win. So we share this bit of news with you, this day, […]
Sorry folks, I am taking the Weekend off!!! Early tomorrow morning I am jumping on a plane, here in Omaha, while Terry boards an aircraft in Houston so that we can rendezvous in an undisclosed location and spend Saturday evening together participating in some gala festivities, together…so for […]
by R.T. Fitch Being a southern boy, Florida and now SE Texas the last 25 years, snow has always been somewhat of an anomaly to me. Of course, going back to my childhood roots, from Michigan, there are fleeting memories of the white, fluffy, frozen rain but the […]
“Time to take a break from the storms, legal battles and selfless energies that so many of you give to this effort and to the betterment of the world we live in. Please take a moment to rest and wash out your mind and souls.
We try not to plug stores and/or companies, here at SFTHH, but in our part of the country we probably spend more time in Tractor Supply than anywhere else, go figure. And at our farm, when I fire up the big red, diesel one ton there is a little Border Collie right at my side, nudging me and saying, “I gotta go too, I just gotta go”. So bringing a four legged companion to Tractor Supply is not foreign to us, in fact, it is simply standard operating procedure. But a horse? That is stretching it a bit, not that we don’t have a few that would like to give it a shot. (Heck, when we let the boys graze in the yard and forget to close the garage overhead doors we often have find Apache trying to open up the interior door to the house…one time, when unsuccessful I exited the house only to step into a pile ‘used hay’ that he had deposited while trying to wait us out.)
So please feel free to read, relax and enjoy as our trials and tribulations will be right where we left them when we reengage, tomorrow. Love ya’all.” ~ R.T.

OpEd by R.T. Fitch, President/Co-founder of Wild Horse Freedom Federation “Loss, Love, Laughter” It was Saturday morning, May 19th, 2018 and I was sitting in front of the computer struggling with what I was going to publish on the blog that day. Not an unusual situation for me […]
“Today we put ‘Stupid’ and ‘Lunacy’ on the back burner while we celebrate the upcoming New Year. Our FGS installation is just such a celebration, a N.O. Police horse dancing in the street, loving life and enjoying the moment.
Dance with your ponies today, even if it is only a mental picture, dance with their spirit and set yours free.
With all of us working together, 2018 will be like no other. The horses and donkeys will finally catch their break.
Happy New Year my friends, and the very best of wishes to you and yours. Be safe.” ~ R.T.
