    touch. If I were to look at my fingers, they would be coated in a thin layer of orange rust that makes me look like I have been snacking on a delicious bag of Cheetos. I stare out into the green expanse of rolling hills that lies in front of me. There is a line of trees just beyond the strips of barbwire that outline the fields and prevents any of the horses from venturing any farther than their limits.
