Horses, riders, carts and donkeys (A tribute)

Hi folks!  These two animals, one very strong, timid and delicate at the same time, as is the Horse, and another enormously resistant and sacrificed, as is the Donkey, have been the ones that have most delivered and served humanity with their work.

However, over the centuries, we have mistreated them with our constant wars. The artists of this post have made a small tribute to them. Thanks so much for your loyalty to this blog!
