No Holiday for Carraige Horses - Christmas Compassion -

We picture this romantic scene: And here is the reality: As you can see these horses lead a very sad life... After years of labor in some other "life" they "retire" to a traffic-congested concrete city... Pulling an exhausting burden in the blistering heat and frigid cold. For most of the day... till the end of their days. After age, injury or illness leaves them "unproductive", their depleted bodies are hauled hundreds of grueling miles to slaughterhouses in Mexico or Canada. There they succumb to the last of brutalities and are butchered into *meat* for Europe and Asian markets...

So during your holiday travels... if you happen to think for a moment that a nice ride around the park would be pleasurable - please think again at what cost to whom? Happy Holidays. Please consider going Vegan.

I never thought of it from this perspective! Thanks, Bea, for allowing me to learn and therefore be kinder to animals.

Serenity... I doubt seriously you need any lessons in kindness - I've read your blog after all...

Hope you and your beautiful family has a joyful Christmas :)
