                               RESOLUTION


 
    Designating December 13, 2004, as National Day of the Horse and 
   encouraging the people of the United States to be mindful of the 
 contribution of horses to the economy, history, and character of the 
                             United States.

Whereas the horse is a living link to the history of the United States;
Whereas without horses, the economy, history, and character of the United States 
        would be profoundly different;
Whereas horses continue to permeate the society of the United States, as 
        witnessed on movie screens, on open land, and in our own backyards;
Whereas horses are a vital part of the collective experience of the United 
        States and deserve protection and compassion;
Whereas because of increasing pressure from modern society, wild and domestic 
        horses rely on humans for adequate food, water, and shelter; and
Whereas the Congressional Horse Caucus estimates that the horse industry 
        contributes much more than $100,000,000,000 each year to the economy of 
        the United States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) designates December 13, 2004, as ``National Day of the 
        Horse'', in recognition of the importance of horses to the 
        security, economy, recreation, and heritage of the United 
        States;
            (2) encourages all people of the United States to be 
        mindful of the contribution of horses to the economy, history, 
        and character of the United States; and
            (3) requests that the President issue a proclamation 
        calling on the people of the United States and interested 
        organizations to observe the day with appropriate programs and 
        activities.
                                 <all>
