    Yesterday I rode a high 'til bed, when I hit there I dreamed of horses fresh met and fair. Tonight I coast a low, rememberin' horses old known and sore missed. It ain't good 'cause I suffer depression that feeds on those emotional swings. ...but it ain't bad 'cause I'll write of 'em both maybe... then, I'll miss 'em all though... I can go out to the barn though, and see her and find some comfort there... then I hurt fer those who can't... but not fer long, 'cause she's there fer me an' George Straits on the old clock radio in the tack room and her breath puffs against my cold face.........


  2. I've heard several claims that the laws against zoophilia are in place to prevent cruelty to animals, (even though most of the time no evidence of abuse is found) This says otherwise..

    1. Idaho: Zoophilia Law: Maximum of life in prison, minimum of 5 years in prison

    Animal cruelty laws:

    25-3503 Poisoning animals.

    Every person who wilfully administers any poisonous substance to an animal, the property of another, or maliciously places any poisonous substance where it would be found by an animal or where it would attract an animal, with the intent that the same shall be taken, ingested or absorbed by any such animal, is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison not exceeding three (3) years, or in the county jail not exceeding one (1) year, and a fine not less than one hundred dollars ($100) or more than five thousand dollars ($5000).

    Except as provided in section 25-3503, Idaho Code, any person convicted for a first violation of any of the provisions of this chapter shall be punished, for each offense, by a jail sentence of not more than six (6) months or by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars ($100) or more than five thousand dollars ($5,000), or by both such fine and imprisonment.

    2. Illinois: Zoophilia Law: Maximum of 3 years in prison and $25,000 fine.

    Animal cruelty laws: Cruelty to animals is a misdemeanor, unless repeated or Severe then it becomes a felony

    3. Delaware: Zoophilia law: Maximum of 8 years in prison

    Animal cruelty laws:

    Cruelty to animals is a class A misdemeanor, unless the person intentionally kills or causes serious injury to any animal in which case it is a class F felony.

    4. Georgia: Zoophilia law: Maximum of 5 years in prison

    Animal cruelty laws: 

    Guilty of a misdemeanor unless severe then guilty of a felony with sentencing no less than 1 year and no more than 5

    5. Michigan: Zoophilia law: Maximum of 15 years in prison; for a repeat offender, maximum of life in prison

    Animal cruelty laws:

    Imprisonment for not more than 4 years and A fine of not more than $5,000.00.

    6. Maryland: Zoophilia law: Maximum of 10 years in prison and $1,000 fine

    Animal cruelty laws: Animal cruelty is a misdemeanor In most cases


    With those being quoted, clearly zoophilia isn't illegal to prevent animal abuse as most of the states that zoophilia is a felony in, animal cruelty itself is a misdemeanor or a crime with less sentencing..

    I will add more of state laws in the comments when I have time to..
