Itís good to get them thinking about what we are asking without being able to see us. Just as if we were on their back.
Gollee Bill, as Festus would say of 'Gunsmoke" fame, I thought only us Backwoods Ozark Hill Williams aka Hillbillys knew the terms Gee and Haw. "Gee" is a verbal commard for a left turn and "Haw" is the verbal command for a right turn. Used when driving a team of mules or horses for plowing fields.

No doubt about it, "compliment" for true!!! Just not many of us around still, or at least I think maybe not, knows what "Gee and Haw' means.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I see I see, I think you should do it with her. Something else you could work on.
