Horses. People, mainly rich people, spend their money on a lot of obnoxious things, and horses is one of them. I've been around horses a few times in my life, granted it was when I was absolutely shitfaced at the Kentucky Derby and the Hunt, and nowhere relatively near the animals but still, it's closer than most can say. People love horses because they have some "majestic" way about them. The only time I cared for a horse was when I was a sophomore in college and I bet on Barbaro at the Derby, aside from that, horses to me are just really big dogs, or cows on steroids. Do you know how much work goes into taking care of a horse? A shit ton. Do you know who does all the work and takes care of the horses? Mexicans. It's true, if it wasn't for Mexicans all the horses in America would probably be dead, or running around, wild and free, like a pack of large, harmless wolves.
Now, rich people aren't the only type of people who own horses. There are poor people who own horses as well. They're not your everyday, "I still think WWE is real" poor people, but your "I'm Amish" poor people. Yeah, you forgot that Amish people exist didn't you? Well they do, and they're really poor. They can't even afford electricity (haha, stupid Amish). I don't get the appeal of owning a horse or even riding a horse for that matter, much in the same way I don't get people who drive motorcycles. Like that South Park episode said, people who ride Harley's are fags, well I think people who ride horses are fags (except Christopher Reeves, because he was Superman).
