When you bought a better more competitive horse or just got better with the same horse, ever notice people treating you different?
I have. My old mare Patty was a slower barrel horse, she ran good and placed but she wasn't real competitive. "Friends" always used to compliment my runs say good job and such, even if I didn't think so I'd smile politely and say thank you. And now on my faster newer horse Link who I did all his training, he's just a higher caliber horse. I get people who I've never talked to telling me what a good horse he is and how good we are together, and alot of the people who've always told me good run before still do. But then there's the people who won't speak to me at all after a run anymore who used to. Doesn't really bother me, amuses me though. I'm not snobby about having a faster horse now, Im still the same person encouraging my friends and telling people good job. Just one of those things I don't get but have noticed.
