Barry, I love your writing! Have you ever read My Horses, My Teachers by Alois Podhajsky? Your writing reminds me of that book. Stories that illustrate how wonderful and special our horses are help others who don't understand horse people know why we do what we do. Often I must contend with people trying to prove that horses are simply useless hay-burners. Yes, we horse people risk our lives, spend our savings, and work ourselves into exhaustion for our beloved ones. It may not make sense, it may be crazy, but when I read what you write, I feel united with other horse people! Thanks!! Write more!
