I've heard about this before, it's absolutely disgusting! It's supposed to be a tradition is Spain! "Does not involve cruelty"? These poor horses are terrified!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
