Re: RC: HELP!!

Wendy wrote a great post on circling horses to get control of them in
January or February, and this technique may help you stay in charge. No
matter why a horse gets into this "mood" it's important to be able to
maintain control, isn't it! It's spring, and after a vacation he's
probably just "seasonally enthusiastic"...

Good luck!  Linda
