Horses in the late 1800s/early 1900s

I recently came across some rare documentation describing horses and their part in the beginning of our century. You may be shocked to find that their role in society was indeed far larger than government propaganda of the past 30 years has lead you to believe. Let us begin.

Apparently, bobsledding was invented by horses in france. Did you know this? I think not.

This image, recently recovered, describes horses working alongside mine workers in english coal mines in the late 1800s. The reason for the large wedding cake is unknown.

The beginning of the end. Horse crime was at its ultimate high in the early 1900s, which may be when the governments of the world decided the concept of horse-as-equal was to be put down. Permanently.

However, the legend lives on. This frighteningly recent image describes a horse speaking to an audience of human men and women at the university of wisconsin, USA. What the speech was about is unknown, but the idea of horses on the rise is, as i'm sure you'll agree, alarming.

More on this when i learn more. Until then, watch your friggin backs.
