    To this day, I am still amazed at how horses can be such willing partners with us. After all, as an engineer, an inch wide piece of leather wouldn't be my first choice to stop a very strong, 1000 lbs animal.

    As for our mares, I may be the boss, but I still listen to what they say.

    I thought it was a wonderful tongue-in-cheek post. Don't take it too seriously and think that Barry is describing a training philosophy.

    Barry: I very much enjoy the light hearted way you write. If ever I was to publish a horse magazine there would be a regular column waiting for you.

    Like I said - Gt Whites aren't a problem but if you meet up with a Porbeagle in the English Channel (as you can) it might just as well be a Gt White - everything looks bigger under water.
    As for seals - well they will chase you around just for the fun of it.

    A liverpool kiss is a head butt Kevin, made famous by Liverpool football hooligans. I was being humerous by the way in case I have to explain myself.

    When you own a horse, you have to be a herd leader. You teach them that they are the leader and that they need to respect that. The rest just falls directly into place. You have to know how to speak horse. My horses all know that what Mom says, goes. They know that if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

    Haha when I read tht it reminded me... When I was just follin' around with rena, I was riding bridless and well, I got to bossy for her liking. (this waswhen I first got her, I had a easygoing,do anything,go anywhere gelding before I got rena, who is a bossy,independant mare) I was trying to get her to back up, which she didnt want to, and all of a suddenly she took of at a trot, heading straight for the wall at her fast bumpy trot, she totally ignored ay of my aids, and when she got to the wall she swung her quarters around, and I slid right off.
    Haha I was scared stiff, she really showed me how much power I had, and how much power I had when she GAVE it to me. Haha ever since then we have come to an 'agreement' where I cannot drill her, or get to pushy. I ask her opinion, and when she knows more then me, well, I let her do her thing, because she has the best work ethic I've ever seen. She lets me teach her things, as long as im willing to let her teach me things. Haha
