Horse and Horse Painting Spirit

Horse and Horse Spirits

My best-known horse: Since very young, I was very familiar and fond of horse due to my grandpa who has one horse. Until now the horse has been 15 years old and too old to ride. When I rode on the horse, I imagined I was a plucky heroine. Riding on the horse, rose and fell, rose and fell, can make you feel free, just like a duck in water and a bird in the sky. When I grew older, more and more interesting stories and moving sceneries came to me. Now, let’s enjoy different kinds of horses.

The most spirited horseAs a Chinese people, I am very proud of Xu Beihong. Xu Beihong, one of the most celebrated painters in modernChina loved to paint horses. Recalling a long tradition of the horse as an emblem of state, Xu Beihong's spirited animals appeal to national pride. He painted so many of them that they have become synonymous with his name.

The most precious horse:The Red Horse is a kind of precious horse brought by Dong Zhuo from Xi Liang. In order to cozy up to Lv Bu, Dong Zhuo sent him the horse as a present. But after Cao Cao killed Lv Bu in theWhiteGateTower, the precious Red Horse was taken by Cao Cao. Later, Guan Yu, in order to protect the two wives of Liu Bei, temporarily sought shelter from Cao Cao. Cao Cao appreciated Guan Yu so much that he presented the horse to him. Since then, the Red Horse and the Green Dragon Crescent Blade had become Yuan Yu’s representative image. After Guan Yu fled from Maicheng when defeated and got killed, the Red Horse followed no other new owner, and died of a hunger strike.ting

The most risky horse: Macau is the only city inChina horse racing gambling is legal and is well known for thrilling casinos and for its international racing events.TaipaIsland (Macau) is where most horse racing occurs.

The most fun horse: Merry-go-round is an amusement ride consisting of a rotating circular platform with seats for riders, commonly in carnie. The "seats" are traditionally in the form of rows of wooden horses or other animals mounted on posts, many of which are moved up and down via gear work to simulate galloping, to the accompaniment of looped circus music, which seems to be boring and naïve to me while it left me sweet and unforgettable memory.

The most unrivaled horse: In 2011, a famous movie called the War Horse moved many people. From legendary director Steven Spielberg to the epic adventure War Horse, a tale of incredible loyalty, hope and tenacity. Filled with spectacularly rich visuals - and complete with Steven Spielberg's exclusive bonus documentary, the War Horse is a "Genuine Movie Masterpiece" and one of the most powerful and moving stories of friendship ever told.

The luckiest horse: After entering university, the short novel "The Rocking-Horse Winner" written by D. H. Lawrence greatly drew my attention. Money, luck, and the child's rocking horse can be seen as symbolism in the story. It is a great pity and tragedy to the little boy. Just like the end of the novel, “Hester, you are eighty-odd thousand to the good, and a poor devil of a son to the bad.” He died for seeking love and for the belonging of his love.

We all have an eye for beautiful things. There are also different kinds of horses around you, hope you can find them. If possible on someday, I can ride my own horse to find a winner and my love.
