    [RC] food for thought - Dot Wiggins

      "In the first place, reflect on the circumstance that the horse has been a resident of this planet for aproximately forty million years longer than man.
        Remember also that the horse reached his physical prime some twenty million years before man learned to stand on his feet.
        Finally, bear in mind that of all the mammals still inhabiting this globe, the horse is dean in point of residence.   There is no existing mammal older than the horse.  There is none younger than man.
         On this purely temporal basis alone, the horse is entitled to a respect bordering on veneration."
            from "The History and Romance of the Horse"   by
