77. Thoroughbred horses love to race, they have a herd mentality, and do not want to be left behind.
Edited on Sat May-03-08 07:07 PM by Maribelle
When a horse shows it was born with this racing spirit, they are groomed and treated better than a lot of humans - - especially better than some slum lords treat poor senior citizens in the South Side of Chicago.

Have you ever watched a film showing wild horses racing? Their spirits soar.

What happened to Eight Belles was a tragic accident.
