May 16th Horse Rescue Day
Believe it or not, back in the 17th century, and before, people believed that an animal, any animal, could not feel pain. So when the dog was whining or the horse neighed what did they thin was going on!?! Well over the years we have learned different and any and all animals feel pain. They feel hunger and sorrow, happiness and muscle aches. They feel everything we humans can imagine. Horses seemingly are abused more than a lot of other animals. Because they are larger, people often think they do not feel. It just isn’t true. A horse is a loving, caring animal and should be treated with all the care you would give a human loved one.
