Animals: Crying in the Manmade House

“I fell in love with a bronco, but I do not have a prairie, and that makes me feel hopeless.” Every time I hear this song called Miss Dong, the grieve eyes of the horse that I met three years ago come to my mind. He was the first and the only horse that I have ever ridden even though I love horses. I always think the feeling of hearing the wind passing by your ears is the most wonderful feeling in the world.
Until the sorrow in his eyes shocked me in that summer. He was tall and strong. His hair was bright and beautiful. His owner told me that he had a terrible temper. “If he runs too fast, just tell me, I will slow him down,” that tall and strong woman hold her whip tightly and grinned. She looked very powerful to her horses. I said to myself and got on the horse.
That man grabbed the rein of him and led him to walk in the first place and he did a perfect job. However, he was a bad-tempered horse, he loved running in the prairie. He started jogging five minutes later and he was running faster and faster. I was frightened. I screamed to that woman and begged her to stop her horse. She did that for me.
She tightened a rein and smoked the horse with her whip. He refused to stop firstly. He wailed to the sky, but he did not stop. That woman increased her strength and started to abuse him. The fight between people and horses started again and finally, as usual, people won.
When I finally stepped on the ground, I noticed that he was sent to another big person. He would be “punished” because of his “reckless” behavior. I saw his eyes when he walked pass me. I read something named sorrow in his eyes. He desired freedom. He loved to run. That woman walked to me later and said sorry to me. I stared at her face and said nothing, but I knew I did not deserve that sorry. She should said sorry to her horses.
People should feel sorry for all the animals that are not willing to stay with them. People are keeping those animals living in the man-made “homes” and forcing them to work for them. Animals are just like people, they have emotions. If you have a horse, you should give him a prairie to run. You can use a whip and a rein to control a horse, but you cannot stop him being “bad-tempered.” When you love the animals, think about can you give them what they want before you take them home, even if that will make you feel hopeless because they maybe will cry in your house and desire to go back.
