For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Depends. Does, "I had a great time in the saddle, even if I DID have to smack your butt a few times to get you going!" qualify?

What about, "You wore me out! After a ride like that, you DESERVE some pellets!"

I understand how you feel. I need to start a 12 step program (Craig's List Anonymous) because I am in the habit of surfing CL "just to see what's out there" and am saddened by how many ads I see for older/used up horses with the obligatory line "COME AND GET HIM BEFORE I SELL HIM AT AUCTION" thrown into the ad.....sigh.
