Let’s continue exploring the topic of rewilding our relationships with domesticated beings, focusing next on horses and other “beasts of burden”.
Here are a couple of questions to get the conversation started - please add any others you can think of!
*what does your current relationship with horses & other “B.of B.” (if any) look and feel like?
*what might transition culture look and feel like in the contexts of these relationships?
*what might rewilded relationships look and feel like? (further down the path of transition - future goals)
*what types of personal or cultural ethics and values should be considered? (spirituality? concepts of “right” and “wrong”?)
*Thoughts about the ways we use the terms “pets” vs. “working animals” vs.“companion / family member”?
*Thoughts about the concept of “ownership”?
*What responsibilities might we have toward domesticated beings during the transition toward wildness?
*what types of practical considerations should be addressed?
