    history of domesticated horses, Ojibwa.

    To me horses are one of the most glorious creatures on earth.  I love looking at them.  Wish I were rich so I could go riding before breakfast.

    Have you heard the story of a collection of horses being trained to dance in ancient times, and when those horses went into battle, the enemy started playing the "training music," so the horses started dancing instead of charging?  The enemy won.

    Always loved that story!
