Switching channels, I find excuses for the terrible cruelty inflicted upon these poor innocent animals, such as but we love them, we take the best of care, (for a price (PRIZE) of course, then on the sports channel another tour in the saddle, this time bikes, a cruelling task over the mountains and just as dangerous to boot, and as if on cue, someone said I love my bike.
God yes, at least someone knows the difference, between the -use- of a thing, and the use of a living thing (Being), I know who in the end the real champions are in my books. It's time we stopped cruelty for the sake of entertainment, Rome had it's days in our past lives, let's leave it in the past and evolve.


Thundering, the hooves trample my brain,
Their pain and cries bring tears,
If this be love, it be insane,
Such love my heart it sears,
Bucking steers and broncos thrust,
Rider’s ego in the air,
A prize to win they must,
Yet, their method so unfair,
To whom this golden burse,
The golden calf lies in the hearse,
Dead the horse and buried deep,
Yet the Stetson man shouts Heil and Sieg!
A cruel master’s task is cheered,
Fills covers full of gold and praise,
For those the wagon trains have steered,
For horses none a tear would raise,
Another horse you ride to town,
In the saddle of your pride,
Another horse denied its crown,
For of the weight of love it died,
If in a saddle you must ride,
Your ego to fulfill,
To still the longing of your pride,
Climb French Pyrenees Hill,
Must you cruel be to heart and soul,
That saddle stretch your bodies pain,
Make the Tour de France your goal,
Then not cheat, the winner of its gain,
Calves, not horse, your power neath,
The heart the body spry,
The power of your wheels beneath,
As along the road you fly,
Mount Olympus not to high,
Nor valley turns to steep,
Daring down the hills you fly,
Just your will and thrust, a champion’s creed,
Fair this sport in fair design,
Not need to punish but yourself,
Not false victories then you mime,
False trophies, place upon your shelf.

Your cry is heard Jasmin, though sadly the roar of the crowd has many decibels in its favor. I find no pleasure in competitions involving animals, with the exception of dog shows, dog agility competitions, and dog long jumping (into pools. I'm confident that those animals are well loved and pampered. Patrick

Running wild in their natural environment is where I most enjoy observing them. Rodeos, horse races, dog races, steeple chases, bull fights et al have never been my style. Let'em loose and let them run wild. May joy peace and love be yours Jasmin my dear friend. Jon Michael

It's time we stopped cruelty for the sake of entertainment

It sadly seems to me that this cruelty is woefully on the rise, from huge dog fighting enterprises, to million dollar horse racing corporations, to shooting down wolves, bears, and coyotes from helicopters and planes 'for sport,' to the many youngsters today who claim they now torture and set on fire dogs and cats, because they are 'bored.'

God Help Us All, and The Far Too Many God-Given Creatures that We Now Abuse, for 'Entertainment.'

Would it not be nice if we could learn to extend love and compassion to all living creatures instead of thinking up ways to use and abuse. Fantastic writing from your heart...

Be always safe,

John, I was no better than you, though I always loved animals, it takes time for rebellious youth to learn. It is with regret that I see a Prime Minister, and leader of the oppostion, garnering votes on the backs of animals, you'd think them having grown out of their childhood, and would as national leaders not promote such events,but guide our youth to different and more enlightened avenues, now that we, they, know better. All of us that have grown up, and care, and have a sense of responsibility would also do well to pass on what we learned by our mistakes. When I pass what seems judgement on such things as cruelty to animals, it is not to gratify some sense of being better, but hopefully encourage others ..............
So here is to you an honest and open heart, for you are helping me to carry on, what I think to be a worthwhile effort.
Love and Peace! Jasmin Horst

I must admit to you, Jasmin, that in my (relative) youth I used to attend the bullfights in Madrid regularly; today, I wouldn't go near one and can't bear to think about it never mind watch...and rodeos and hare coursing bring out the worst in me, too. By all means torture ourselves if we must but lay off the animals.

Well done.

This one got to me. You tell so well of the unfairness animals must endure. They give so much and we use them for our own gain. It's sad.
