I flunked the danged online test. Will have to retake. Lack of interest, I guess..
Nicker, I just Amazon-ordered (cheap!) Kahonov's Tao of Equus & Riding Between the Worlds. That's what am interested in.
Long time ago, @ the stable where I first tried all this stuff (then onward to disaster-hiatus), I went to a mare hanging out by the pasture fence, just to talk. I kept swiping the flies away from her, I was crying, & talked (about everything, not just horse stuff,everything) while she listened. After a bit, she lowered her head then blew her breath into my face. It was cold, & froze my face & lips for a bit...then she walked away. Now, that sounds airy-fairy, I realize. But, it happened. I actually called Linda Kahonov (really, I did), & told her about it. She said horses have extroidainary (sp) ways, & I don't recall what else she said. Well. There it is. I've never told anyone this, except Ms Kahonov (who I never bothered again).
I am NOT airy-fairy. But, the thing happened. It wasn't the last time something "odd" happened when I talked w/a horse (& they were mares, the both times).
But it happened. Had to finally say it. Kick me outta here for being goofy, but it did.
Onward & Upward, I'm Not Done Yet...
