America’s horse

20 May

mustangs

 

They are the forgotten.

Of course, that can be said about so many on this planet–people, plants, entire species.

When someone wants whatever it is the forgotten have–usually air and water and land and resources– then loss of memory is a convenient human trait.

Mustangs indeed arrived in North America along with their European riders. But horses lived on this continent millions of years ago, their fossils and remains found all over the place for those who want to look.. The argument rages on–are horses native wildlife and therefore a protected species, or just an introduced  fauna now becoming a ‘pest’ and taking water and grass and land and space away from competing life forms such as cattle?

“Unbranded” is a movie about land and space and mustangs, here is a link to the trailer:

Four friends decide to ride mustangs across several thousand miles of the horses’ original habitat. To make a statement, to give themselves an achievement, to speak out for something they believe in and want.

Sure, life is about opposing forces and everyone cannot be a winner,certainly not all the time. But even as the world becomes more streamlined and technological, and as we all become a global village–mere points of optic fibre light–it is nice to remember that once there was space and time and we were just visitors..
