I'm here primarily to be an activist for horse welfare. I'm also often an activist for other things, but in a country that seems so against all I believe in, this seems something I can deal with fighting right now. Later other causes may appear. But right now, this is horse and Pagan based. Mostly it will probably be a repository for announcements about rescues, actions and the like regarding horse welfare. And used as a way to scoop out various communities for what is going on. And passing things along to my email group. The very rare personal post will be friends-locked, all public posts will be for the horses or other causes.

I'm sort of a Sarmatian Reconstructionist Amazon, but that's mostly a figment of my imagination as I know of no one else practicing it. "Lysippe" means "she who let's loose horses" and I'm an archer, so, that is all you need to know about the name. I live with two very special people on a renovated farm and we have a small, diverse, herd of horses and a pack of dogs equally diverse, a few diverse chickens, and two not very diverse goats, and that's more than you probably need to know on that.

"Whenever people say 'We mustn't be sentimental,' you can take it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add, 'We must be realistic,' they mean they are going to make money out of it." Bridget Brophy (quoted from "Dark Horses and Black Beauties")
