My grandfather has two strong and heavey horses because when he cuts hay he uses them. Many years ago when the Indians had no horses they used to travel on foot or in canoes. The wild horses that use to be around descendence from tame horses that ran a away from white people.

Indians have many kind of horses they are different in color, sizes, form and strength. Some people like heavey horses that can pull heavey loads, and some want light horses that can run swiftly so they can make lots of money on fourth of July.

The horses that work or those that travel on the stony roads should be shod, or they would get lame like the one in the picture.
