Re: Trying to remember horses

Shown at the county fair -- a bred-to-miniature horse.

Original view usually best.

Your text informs about the size of the horse, but I think it would be deduced by comparing it to the size of planks and height of feeding troughs carried in our memory banks and used as a form of standard measurement.

The focus on the wire cage implies a restrictive power of man over the horse, and made all the more brutal by the irregular bends in the mesh.

Horses started off that size, so maybe the breeding isn't as bad as it seems in this case, but I am very sceptical of man's attempt to engineer nature. Seemingly natural looking dogs have issues, such as hip problems, caused by the breeding, and which are not immediately obvious.

It also has something about the worst sorts of circus about it. Come and look at this tiny creature. It seems to be in a cage instead of grazing in pastures.

A thought provoking photo.
