My buddy Stu has put up a great post about horses. Had to post it here for anyone who might be interested, very nice piece.

Wonderful story that. My sister has had horses since she was a teen (now she's showing minis) and I love being around them too. Fine animals.

Minis kill me, they're so dam cute LOL.

interesting...thats exactly how I felt about the one horse I was lucky enough to bond with. He was big, even for a horse, and he could have tossed me around like a puppet if he'd wanted to...he did it plenty of times to other people who tried to ride him, most of them far more experience riders than me. I don't think I'll ever know exactly why he tolerated me, but he would do anything for me.

I can still remember the first time I was riding him and I *thought* about going faster...I don't think I moved at all, but something unconscious I did was picked up by him, and he went faster. So, I started trying to do all commands that way...and it worked. Pretty amazing stuff!
Also, the word limit on these comments is frustrating for me. I fail at this!

Kate, if you're reaching the word limit on comments, it could be time to get your own blog. :P

Pretty sure there's nothing I can do about the 300-word limit, but I'll sure look into it. You aren't the first person who'se been frustrated by it.
