"she absolutely has the attitude"


The human race needs some relief from the petty malice that Willard Romney practices and promises to pour on us in abundance until November, and then for at least four years if the American people decide that it is the American Way.  This time of year as we near the Kentucky Derby, we get stories about how horses carry their heavy load of nobility and keep the human race from the total degradation that politics has become.   Here is a story about a filly that was rescued from starvation and shows the spirit of her breed. 

She is going to try her hooves on the competitive track.  The story points out, "Sometimes horses don’t have to be runners to be winners."  Horses can lift us out of, at least for a moment or two, the morass of human meanness in which our current politics have us mired.

I begin to understand your love of horses. That photo and the story gave me a real boost.
