For as long as there has been civilization, the horse has been by man's side. They have worked the fields, carried men through wars, traveled through the harshest conditions to get us to our destinations, amused us in circuses, and given us pleasure when we just wanted to go for a ride.
Some horses are lucky enough to have caring owners that give them a nice retirement when they become old.
