After reading Linda's letter, it reminded me of something I read a few
years ago, the gist of it being............"there are so many good horses out
there, don't waste your time on a bad one." Finding a horse who's right in
his head, in his outlook, in his attitude beats the heck out of finding one
who's great in conformation but is a $#@!head otherwise. I learned this with
my first horse-after being thrown because he didn't feel like leaving the
barn, I sold him to a horse crazy kid who had him straightened out and flying
right in six months. She did better with that horse than I did, but we both
benefitted, actually all three of us did. He and I did nothing but fight.
Life is too short to fight with a horse.
And, hey Lyn!!!! Hear hear on your letter about ponies! And about massage!!
