Reasons to be glad you’re not a horse: BITS - Pt.1
Ok. For the uninformed: A bit is a piece of metal which goes into the horse’s mouth. Bits cause pain by cutting into the gums, tongue and bars (literally the horse’s skull bones on the bottom of the jaw, which are as sharp as a knife edge) to “control” horses, and are a torture device. Imagine having these pieces of work in your mouth!
And these aren’t even the worst that man has come up with. There are bits with spikes, bits with roll bars that pinch, bits made of bicycle chain, scissor bits, twist bits, ball chains…
Trust me, if you can imagine it, someone, somewhere, had made it into a bit and used it on a horse.
The other day I was thinking, “I’m really glad they don’t make shock collars for horses, because horse people would be THRILLED.”
And then I ragequit the human race.
