Opening Theme.....

"Hast thou given the horse strength? 

Hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? 
He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage..."
Book of Job, Old Testament
"...through his mane and tail the high wind sings, 
Fanning the hairs, who wave like feather'd wings." 
William Shakespeare
"He is fire and wind transformed into poetic majesty;
A sonnet of beauty and grace;
A rhapsody of power in motion.
His strength and beauty captivates us. 
His magnificence tantalizes the mind with wonder and amazement. 
He fills our dreams with fanciful images of riding through clouds...
Of finding unicorns in magical forests...
Of taming wild mustangs."

"And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew his breath over it, and created the horse."
