Henry Ford had a great idea but the horse was left in the dust…






I saw these photos today and I was quite moved.

So, I wanted to show them to you and then give you a sneak peek of what Horse & Man plans to accomplish for the horses… to give back to them.

You see, HORSE & MAN, Inc. now has non-profit status!  So, we can now do our own Good Works!  Lots of them.  Whatever we can think of that will benefit the horses, we can do!

You can go here to view a sneak peek at the new Non-profit site (horseandman.org) to see our plans!

(As an aside, we received our Non-Profit designation only 3 weeks after applying!  So, if you are thinking of becoming a Non-Profit, you might want to use FOR PURPOSE LAW as they really helped make this a speedy process!)

WHY did Horse & Man create a non-profit arm ?  Because of photos like these…

From the first time they met, there was a symbiotic relationship.

Man wanted to harness the power of the horse and the horse – being a herd and prey animal – wanted companionship and protection.

For thousands of years, it worked.  Horses were part of every household dating back to before the Romans and their Cavalry.

Horsemanship was a skill to be valued and a good horse was a prize.  But that all changed a hundred years ago with Henry Ford…  Just a few generations later most humans are unfamiliar with the horse – let alone their plight.

Horses have gone from being heralded and valued, to mostly forgotten.

Wild horses are taken from the open range and placed in cramped camps created by the very governing body charged with their protection.

Domestic horses are being sent to slaughter by the thousands due to reckless breeding and the lack of incentive for farmers to grow affordable horse feed.

 At Horse and Man, we haven’t forgotten.

We value the horse and its thousands of years of servitude and honesty.

 Horse and Man wants to shine the light back onto the relationship between equines and humans to elevate their status to that of the dog, dolphin, elephant and other animals for which humans have recognized their intrinsic value.

FOR THOSE OF YOU READING TODAY… WELCOME to the new site dedicated to our Non-Profit Good Works!

I will launch this site very soon – but it is ready to go so here is a peek!

    When I clicked on jewelry website link, a page came up asking for name and log-in info. I didn’t see anything about registering, however.

    I guess I’ve been a bit consumed with all the new ideas and Tess that I have neglected to report on the others!
    You are correct! I’ll write about everyone very soon!

    Congrats on the charity status. I also follow the Pioneer Woman and they have a herd of BLM wild horses, mares only. They free roam over a couple of pastures and get fed in the winter months. This is a better option than being crowded into small pens.

    Glad Tess is getting around. Can we get some pictures of the rest of bunch? Updates?
    Thanks
