Centaurs of the War

Centaurs of the War

2019

Horseshoes welded on steel. This is story from my Grandma. During the World War II, 2-3 000 Russian soldiers enter to her small Russian village. At the time, the village was inhabited only by children and the elderly because everyone left to the war and also most of the animals were confiscated, only one very old horse still was there. Soldiers took the horse and the villagers thought that they would eat it, but after the soldiers moved on a few days later, the villagers discovered an old horse left in a barn with its shoes welded to a steel plate. The horse can’t move, can’t lay down: it was completely fixed. Villagers didn’t understand why the soldiers didn’t eat it… they realized after that it was used for sexual needs…
