[RC] Poor Renegade - steve shaw

I once owned a fabulous horse named Sierra Fadwah's Renegade. He is one
of the strongest horse I have ever had. Thank you Jackie B.
One time riding him with friends in a Santa Cruz park we got into a nest
of yellow jackets. It was on a hill side and they unloaded all of us and
took off through the brush, trying to brush off the critters.  We
finally got them back and continued on, though Renegade kept tossing his
head uncharacteristically.
Back at the ranch while untacking him there was a yellow jacket, still
attached to his face. Yeow! Poor guy, he put up with so much from
me..... he has a great life now though, on 60 acres of grass overlooking
the Monterey Bay, and getting out 3-4 times a week on trail rides.  Hey,
I want that life!
One thing I have solidly learned. Anytime my horse or the horses around
me start REALLY swishing their tails and anyone bucks, I don't even look
around or stop. I TAKE OFF. Get out of there and look later.
