  1. That should have been “cannons”. Sorry

  2. And now look what Canada does with horses. That government should be ashamed of allowing horse slaughter to go on in that country. I have wondered just where Canada, the US and many other countries would be at today if the last horse ancestor had died out 11,000 years ago when they disappeared totally from North America. Like I have said before this planet would have been a lot more peaceful if the armies would have had to walk to meet the enemy dragging their canons themselves they would have been to tired to fight.
