I'm not sure if you can count this but I certainly do. I try very hard to work with and talk to my horse, and all animals at their level, in their language. So I spend alot of time watching herd dynamics in the field, reading or watching how animals interact with each other and trying to use that as the translator for when I work with them. Of course it means becoming part of the herd or pack or flock before working with an animal, but in the long run it makes everything we do better for both of us.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back ---Abigail Van Buren
