What does it mean when people send "jingles" to sick or deceased horses? I did a quick Google search and came upon a native american story that would explain ill/ injured horses...but not deceased ones. Anyone care to explain? it's more pure curiosity than anything....thanks!

Jingles was a term coined on another bulletin board long ago. It started as a joke on a long thread when members threatened to join a cult and beg for money at an airport by banging on tambourines. It was suggested that jingling a curb chain would work better. Now, jingling curb chains are for whenever a person needs good luck.

Interesting! I saw it left on comments for Andrea Leatherman's mare Envy after her fatal fall yesterday and was wondering what it meant. Thanks!
