I’ve been horse-mad all my life, and have owned horses for more than a dozen years. Currently I have a 22-year-old Quarter Horse and a 13-year-old Thoroughbred. I’ve mucked stalls, put up hay, groomed, fed, been stepped on, kicked, nuzzled and saved from disasters by these critters.
For non-horsefolks, I’ve noticed, horses are awe-inspiring, intimidating, fascinating, glamorous, puzzling… especially puzzling. Questions, I get questions from visitors to the barn and people I meet when I’m out riding. Cool! I love talking about horses – in general, and mine in particular.
So, any of you have any questions? I promise to give you the fruits of my many years spent studying these wonderful beasts at first hand. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll look it up. (Or fake a smart-ass reply. ;)) For advanced students, I offer discussion of the high-white rule, headset – the good, the bad, and the ugly, whither the halter world, starting two-year-olds, and other such great equine debates.
