- Horses can identify perfectly with the warrior/battlefield mentality -
From ancient times through the conquest of the New World, a meticulously trained war horse was more valuable than a human slave. Such an animal could rear, strike, and kick out his back legs on command to injure or intimidate foot soldiers. He could leap to the side, slide to a stop, spin, and take off running without hesitation. Yet, he would also stand at attention in the midst of a raging battle for his master soldier to dismount and engage in hand-to-hand combat. The equine morphogenetic field scintillates with painful memories of countless immaculately trained, four-legged warriors who died in battle. (Tao of Equus, Linda Kohanov)
