In January of this year, we moved the Fund for Horses website to WordPress where we have been hosting the f4H blog Tuesday’s Horse for many years. It is so fabulous to have everything “under one roof”. One of our most popular pages has always been the horse quotes page. Here are some of our favourites. Following our quote selection, there is something extra special — a poem by our long-time friend and wild horse advocate, Craig Downer.
“If God made anything more beautiful than a horse, He kept it for Himself.” ~ Author Unknown.
“Horse thou art truly a creature, for thou fliest without wings and conquerest without sword.”~ Author Unknown
“God made the horse from the breath of the wind, the beauty of the earth, and the soul of an angel.” ~ Unknown
“Somewhere. . . . somewhere in time’s own space,
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,
Some Paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.”
~ Stanley Harrison
“No heaven can heaven be, if my horse isn’t there to welcome me.” ~ Author Unknown
WILD HORSE DESTINY
by Craig Downer
Something there is of Destiny
that calls to me
in the wild horse
who runs so free
upon the remotest
desert and plain,
or valley green,
for there is a Rightness here
and an ancestral precedence
dating back millions of years!
Surely this egotistical upstart
called civilized man
shall not be allowed
either this powerfully beautiful line
of ascent from ancient times,
or that by-God-valued Freedom
the very soul of Horsekind
would be denied.
… And there is something implicit here too
in the very Destiny of all we call “the West”
that affirms: “Without wild horses
free to roam the vast unfenced expanses,
the West itself its very soul would lose!”
May Heaven forbid!
