I spotted two Mounted Policemen in my neighbourhood recently and had a nice chat with one of the officers. Up close, the horses appear giant sized, almost too big for their legs. When I see Mounted Policemen, I always flash back to my ride to high school in the mornings. In those days [dates herself], there were fewer traffic lights. To direct the busy school traffic, Mounted Policemen were used. I always looked forward to seeing the horses. And I love horse racing too. They are such beautiful creatures. Pity they have to be put down when their legs get injured.
When I asked the officer about their diet, he said he had just put them to feed on some grass in an open lot up the road [free gardener :)]. Immediately I thought “see, even horses are on a plant-based diet sometimes.” But I digress. Take a look at this beautiful animal.
