Re: [RC] The boy who cried wolf - Sandy Adams

perhaps I am still hopefully naive, but wouldn't it just be simpler if people just learned to STAY off each other's tails - no the trail and hwy?:),

Actually, there is a very good reason not to put a red ribbon in the tail of a horse that is not "a kicker."  Doing so renders a red ribbon in a horse's tail meaningless.
If people with "kickers" who put red ribbons in their horses' tails as a warning to other riders ever wonder why other riders don't heed the warning (which happens often, the wondering, I mean)....well...they can blame people who put red ribbons in the tails of their horses that are "kickers."
Issuing dire warnings for dangers that do not exist is rarely ever a good practice.
