Domesticated since 4000 BC, horses of today still retain their grand, wild beauty. Horses are loving and docile, intuitive and highly intelligent. Living for up to 30 years, beloved companion horses truly become a member of the family.
Horses March Alongside Man through History
Colts, fillies, foals, mares, geldings, stallions and yearlings from the withers to their tails, horses are magnificent creatures. They have played a significant role in history, even carrying people through our lives today. And yet, we have only scratched the surface of these fine animals who even hold the power to heal spirits after tragedy.
Consider one of Chez Roulez’ all-time favorite poems and the role the horse plays within it. Robert Frost’s Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening is a timeless representation of the subtlety, yet prominence of horses in the life of Man. In this little piece Frost takes the time to consider his horse’s point of view:
“Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
Chez Roulez’ Equestrian & Horses Collection celebrates every phase of horses’ lives, from playful colts to adult mares and stallions. With both realistic and creative perspectives, these horses and equestrian items remind horse lovers why the four-legged beauties make such great friends.
