I shall hug him and squeeze him and call him Squishy, and he shall be mine!

Muddled with the highly emotive elation of conquest and the archaic traditions of animal training, they continue to blindly rape the intrinsic spirit of God's greatest masterpiece in the animal kingdom. Lo that I am a member of this species who call themselves masters of the universe, for they violate not one precept of universal decency, but two.

Run away, very far away and very fast.

Alex.... I don't even understand what he's trying to say. So I'm just going to run away fast, but silently.

Loving Belle is like feeling Spring approach in February.

Oh My

If only I had know this sooner, I could have loved my 18hh clysdale stallion into being halterbroke. Would have been so much easier....

Run, far, far away, before you catch a whiff of whatever they are on...

Have you watched The Room? Because you will know exactly what I'm talking about when it comes to the crazy people and the objects.. except this is horses and people.

Not my thing.. at all. I'm a friend to my horse, but I'm also his mentor and most importantly, leader of the herd.

He gets that, and we do fine. But have at it, if you'd like to.

Go ahead:

"The Room"? What is that?

*Warning! All riding is prohibited until the entire course is completed, (or until a satisfactory level of bonding is reached to be determined by myself or a Certified Associate).


*Warning! Using FT will in all probability cause a certain amount of disassociation with family members and friends/peers who use traditional 'training formats.'


*Warning! FT is highly addictive! Initiating an FT relationship with a horse will cause a never-ending lifetime desire to go deeper and deeper into the relationship not only with the horse in question, but any horse you come in contact with later. To one degree or another, it may also alter your perspective of our relationship with all animals of this earth.
This is part of the email I rec'd. Although it sounds good, the more you read, the more it scares me. I am especially worried about what the cattle and calves will think, if I talk "horse" to them.

I'm sure there are some of you that really like this method, but quite frankly the videos were a bit "off" as well. I'm glad I decided against this, because it would not work at all for me, since I have a great relationship with both of my horses. I was just thinking that it would be fun to learn another way of thinking, but not to the expense that it is, both being drawn into something without a trial (at least Parelli lets you get a free trial) and the monetary expense of a $1000.

Speed Racer, there are many **Warnings, I chose some of the best.

It makes you feel like your life is going to change, but from the "Kool-aid land of Oz" way, instead of a sane way.

What's the problem? That is current thought for raising childeren too... *walks away grumbling about the youngsters screwing up the world*

My Vet and Farrier are currently splitting my childeren's inheritance.
