It’s not easy being a horse in Nicaragua.

I see horses being used everywhere in Nicaragua and sometimes my heart goes out to them. Long days with not much water and dodging traffic on the busy streets. Cheap ropes and chains are the gear they wear.

I took a picture of this horse, because some guy rode by on his bike and slapped it in the face. Many kids are brought up to be cruel to animals here and it seems senseless to be mean for no reason.

The horse seemed very calm and I gave him a good scratch on the ears and rubbed his snout.
