WILD MUSTANG | INTEGRITY
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, early evening. This horse was so powerful when he ran I could clearly see he was the alpha male. He always leads the herd while the others showed deference to him. He was strong, muscular and fast. Whenever the herd ran, he was in the lead. This evening something changed. Because the horse who is being bitten started winning, I detected a noticeable shift in the alpha male. He stopped strutting, no longer the center of attention; He looked beaten. To my surprise, he started playing dirty. He bit the winning horse's ear and neck. This reminded me of an infamous boxing match where a great athlete lost his integrity which resulted in him losing respect in everyone's eyes.
It's OK to lose sometimes, as long as you keep trying. People will respect your effort. Once you lose your integrity, it's lost forever.
