“NOT ALL HORSES ARE PAMPERED”
I started out being a bit humerous with the title. Even chuckled to myself a time or two thinking how clever I was in coming up with it. Then “dang it”, it went in a different direction.
Ever driven by a horse standing out in a field that looks like all its had to eat is barbed wire? And, with all the jagged boards thrown together for a makeshift corral….the animal will have to go to great lengths to ‘not’ open a gash in it’s side.
This reminds me of what my daddy once told me about some children, “That one is not being raised up, they’re being jerked”. Brings up a great deal of compassion in me for peoples circumstance.
