Welcome to The Apple Seed! Some time filled with stories for you and your family. Since 2013 we’ve been bringing you tall tales, personal tales, fairy tales, historical tales and more. All kinds of tales, from all kinds of tellers. Today we're talking about horses! Horses have been a key player in history, in western migration, in poetry, and in storytelling. Songs, short stories, novels and poems have centered around the ‘Cowboy’ and their horse for a long time. Many folktales and songs have been connected to life through the vision of a horse. There is always something new to be learned- whether it’s through hearing about one’s connection to their horse, some of the tales behind the hope that horses carry on their backs, or just a funny tale involving the majestic beasts. So let us all sit down together and learn something new, feel the wind on our face, and imagine the freedom that horses and the love of land and animals can bring.
