a documentary

We stayed up late last night watching a documentary about palomino horses done by a woman who was fascinated with the way the animals behave and lived their lives. It was an interesting show which the three of us enjoyed. It was heartbreaking how the horses are rounded up (those that pass a certain criteria anyway) so they can be auctioned off (a regular auction on-site not online auction). But it is also heartwarming to to realize that they try to stick to their families like humans. Although there were instances that greed and power got the best of them. We watched the show from start to finish. When I looked at the time it was almost midnight and the little man actually fell asleep on the couch halfway through the documentary. I will not mind watching another show similar to the one we watched last night. It was relaxing and informative.
