Hi there! If you’re a kid and you love meeting really cool animals in real life—and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?—then this video is for you! [tweet this]

I’m so excited to be making another video just for you. So far in my videos for kids we’ve talked about why we don’t drink milk, or eat meat or eggs, or honey, or wear wool, how you can be a superhero for the planet, the people and the animals by being vegan, and even heard from real vegan kids! You can watch all of those videos later if you want linked right here and below! (read more + resources)

This was my first ever LIVE Q&A. And twice in one day, no less! Thank you all SO MUCH to all of you who watched and participated!

If you missed the live broadcasts or want to relive the awkward, the YouTube session is up above and the Facebook Q&A, is below.

NOTE: For the Facebook video below, the actual Q&A starts around 4 minutes in.

One of the most iconic and time-honored human-animal relationships is that of horse and rider. From the noble steeds of battle to a little girl’s first pony, the bond people share with their horses seems to border on the profound, and the idea of giving up riding is incomprehensible.

So what would lead a lifelong trainer, trader, and rider, who lived and breathed horses for years, to not only give it all up, but even question concept of domestication itself?
