Tom asked:  Is your daily mileage the same or at a higher level? Mileage relaxes

Answer:  It is alot lower because of the rain/ mud/ etc and usually he is a nut
case with so much time off.  It is a pleasant surprise for me that he isn't and I
contribute it to myself riding more relaxed, breathing and perhaps his maturity
(12 this spring).

Question:  Someone asked me if sweet feed makes him sweat.  I never thought of
that connection before.  Is there anything in feeding sugars/ molasses and a
horse sweating?
P.S.  I enjoy your articles in Trail Blazer...thank you!
