Re: RC: Reply to rearing

I agree, Angie....That was in my younger days when I didn't know I say, I would not do that now under any circumstances. 
Rule is, NEVER hit a horse above the withers...ever...under any

Tellico "Big" fell off that? And are still with us?
Somebody was looking after you! <grin>
