Something every horse owner should know.

I was reading a magazine and I came across the most amazing piece of advice/quote/story that everyone who is crazy about horses should know.

It really put a postive twist into my mind about everything I have done with Joe.

' There was one an Italian sculptor named Donatello, who ordered an 18-foot black of marble. When it arrived, he didn't like it, saying it had far to many flaws and cracks to be worth anything. He told the those who delivered it to take it to the guy down the road, who wouldn't remember wheather or not he had ordered it. To make a long story short, that 'other guy; was Michelangelo, who said 'Ok, I'll see what I can do with it'. Out of that block of marble, with all its flaws and cracks, Michelangelo created the statue of David. When he was asked how he could create something so beautiful and perfect out of something with so many flaws and cracks. Michelangelo answered 'David was always there, I just chipped away the excess'

So when your working with your horse, don't focus on what your horse can't do, or lacks. Focus on becoming a craftsperson, working to uncover the special talents that your horse already has. I believe inside of every horse is a David waiting to be discovered.

LOL, I got a LOT of "Hidden Davids" to find! Love that sentiment, it's very very true.
