DIARY OF FATHER TIME
The health department in Sacra
mento, Cal., I see, recently refused
to permit the slaughter of horses for
human consumption. There is also
much being said regarding the de
cline of the horse since the advent of
the automobile, but figures show that
there are as many horses in use now
as there ever were, although perhaps
not for pleasure. The use of the
horse by man dates from the period
of the Norman Conquest, that period
marking an important stage in the
history of the animal.
In 1121 two eastern horses were
imported into 'England and" King Ed
ward III became fond of horses and
purchased fifty Spanish animals. In
the ninth year of his reign Edward
received two running horses from the
King of Navarre. The horse didn't
figure much from then up to the time
of the reign of King Henry VII.
His object was to retain the best
horses in the country and keep the
price down by limiting the demand
and encouraging -the supply. Henry
VIII was particularly careful that
horse breeding should be conducted
on right principles and he ordered all
horses, mares and colts, not giving
promise of growing into serviceable
animals or of producing them, to be
killed.
