FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Milano de Flore, waiting dozily at Frankfurt airport for a flight to Buenos Aires after competing in the London Olympics, had no idea how important he is to the air freight business.


Lufthansa Cargo, the freight arm of Germany's leading airline Deutsche Lufthansa transports around 100 million live animals per year, almost as many as the number of passengers served by parent Lufthansa.


@FranJurga writes: I loved this article, which explains the rise of equine air cargo, and the entry of Emirates Air to the international carrier list. I'd love to learn more about air transport of horses. Am I the only one who is interested in this aspect of the international horse world?

@franjurga writes: Here we go again! Now that the Olympics are over, the politics can take back the news. 


No, not the Democratic National Convention--horse welfare politics!


Chris Stafford and I discuss some of the issues in the horse world. To me, they're all eggs in one basket. Sneeze at a Walking horse show and someone feels it at a three-day-event.


Keep your eye on the news because the way that equine welfare and reform are handled will affect us all.
