mofo: inspires

IMG_2470MoFo 18: Honor a human or non human who inspires your veganism.

My vegans-for-life Clydesdale friends. Gentle giants. Powerful, intelligent, calm and graceful. Two thousand pounds of force with plant fueled stride, and apples, pears, watermelon rinds, carrots, corn husks, grain mash, perennial flowers, lunch plates left unattended… I’ve never seen a Clydesdale try to stomp or kill another creature. I have witnessed them go out of their way to not step on a dog or cat under hoof. These horses fill my heart and inspire me.

    whenever we find ourselves out in the country i always want to run up and pet the horses.

    i just finished reading a short story where dead presidents come back as horses – very odd but interesting!

      Their muzzles are the best! So soft. Who wrote the short story? Sounds really weird and cool!

      Clydesdales are considered a breed at risk, there’s estimates of only about 5000 worldwide. A friend just went on a six week Clydesdale nerd tour through Scotland.
