Cavalos...Horses...



Where in this world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent; there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient. England's past has been borne on his back. All our history is his industry; we are his heirs, he is our inheritance. Ladies and Gentlemen: The HORSE!
Robert Duncan's "Tribute to the Horse"
(Read at the conclusion of every Horse of the Year show in London)

Horses are such beautiful and noble animals! I simply loved the photos and I entirely agree with what's written in the text.

Lovely pics!
Have you been riding one of those?
These animals are very intelligent. Which others to compare to them ? Dogs, no doubt! :P
I know you love cats but... this is my very personal opinion! ;) **
