The story that I want to tell you cannot be found in a book. They say the history of the West was written from the saddle of a horse, but it’s never been told from the heart of one… not ‘til now. I was born here, in this place that would come to be called the Old West, but to my kind the land was ageless. It had no beginning and no end, no boundary between earth and sky. Like the wind and the buffalo grass, we belonged here. We would always belong here. They say the mustang is the spirit of the West. Whether that West was won or lost in the end, you’ll have to decide for yourself, but the story I wanna tell you is true. I was there and I remember. I remember the sun and the sky and the wind calling my name, in a time when wild horses ran free.
God I love this movie

Banksy’s latest: Meat truck filled with stuffed animals
The truck, which has the street artist’s 800-number on it, was spotted in Brooklyn during the first week of October The site confirmed that it is, indeed, the work of the now-infamous British satirist. Banksy calls this piece “The Sirens of the Lambs.”
“It was so loud,” a tipster told Gothamist. “Not sure, but I think someone was in the truck banging as if the animals were trying to escape.”
A few days later the truck was touring the Meatpacking District and then it will circulate citywide, according to Banksy’s website. Banksy posted a YouTube video with reactions to the truck. This his his 11th work in a month-long series in New York City.
This is insulting. Animals are not transported like this anymore and they sure are not put in together. They don’t kick around to try and get out, that is a human emotion forced upon them. They don’t know where they are going, the have no clue. I give props to the artist for such an interesting piece, but it portrays a false truth, and gives a bad name to an industry who strives to be as humane as possible.
