So my next trip will be England and Ireland! I could not find anyone who wanted to go, so I just decided to head out on my own, travel, and meet new people. I'll be leaving in late May, and my first stop will be London.
If you want to see the route I am taking, I have a map that I put up on my website here: [link]
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated if you know of anywhere worth me checking out along the way~Wild Horses:
As some of you might know, I am from Alberta, Canada; a place that advertises itself on the old west and natural wilds. I suppose this is why it shocked me so much to hear about how little is being done for our wild horses. Here are two of the problems the horses supposedly cause; number one is that farmers think the horses are destroying their farm land by eating their crops, so they are captured, killed, and sent to the meat market. The second is that others think they are bad for the ecosystem by being competition for other wild animals.
The issue of all this is that since we have domesticated versions that look the same as the wild kind, people don't seem to care and think nothing should be done. In fact, the Provence is planning a cull again this year.
What do you think? Do you think wild horses are a nuisance and not worth the danger to crops and environment? Or would you be on the side of keeping some horses wild?
