Last week I went to watch horse racing, yeah I just watched I didn’t win 😐
I was too excited and thrilled to go as this is on my bucket list, and finally I would be ticking it off. After a couple of races I started thinking about all the whipping the horses had to take in the effort to win. Maybe I was losing and hence the thought …hmmm……but on a serious note is it really necessary for the jockey to keep whipping the poor thing so that some people or the house could win. I went online and googled it and found that there are laws to fine/suspend jockeys for excessive whipping but how do you define “excessive”, definitely you don’t ask the horse, “Have you been whipped excessively, do you want to press charges? ”
I felt bad that I paid to see this and also that I lost…hmmm …..I don’t know which one triggered the feeling. It just happened once , never to happen again.
Now I am going to concentrate on the next item in my bucket list – watch the animals in their natural habitat running free and wild AND finish my next painting (this one’s not on the bucket list) 🙂
