When evaluating for quality, tasting wine and looking at horses have several similarities.
Catching a hind leg to start a green horse horse teaches it to yield to pressure, and keeps colt starters safe if done correctly.
Many horse people have similar trigger smells that take us back to a happy memory, like fly spray, gas station coffee or fresh shavings.
Every horse owner knows that no matter the age, color or breed, it seems every horse is accident-prone.
There’s something special about the sheer power and speed that comes with riding a running horse, especially when it’s within control. Riding a wide-open gallop is hard to beat.
Knowing the bloodlines of your papered horse can offer great insight into their disposition and athletic capabilities.
At my place, it’s a hassle and ultimately a waste of money, as most of our horses are yearlings and 2-year-old colts that live together outside and destroy anything that comes into their paths with their curious little noses. No fly mask, no sapling tree and definitely no blanket is deemed safe on our place unless kept under lock, key and quarantine.
