My last fall happened this past spring. I was schooling a new mare that hadn't been ridden in the past few years. I was out in my field a few days after my neighbor hayed it and there was this clump of hay laying on the ground that I couldn't figure out why it was there and not rolled.
I brought the mare close to take a look and at the last moment I remembered. The mare saw the turkey fly up about a moment before I did. A buddy of mine who was watching said it looked like a cartoon - one moment I was on the horse and the next I was suspended in mid air with no horse under me. Thank goodness for a soft, freshly cut field.
The turkey was sitting on a nest and my neighbor cut around it.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
