I have a new method that I am working on too!

It still has some kinks in it that I am trying to work out and I am kind of stuck.

It is called "Think like a Cowboy" and I just keep wanting to find a big tree to fall asleep under.
Then when I wake up I start looking to find someone that I can waste the rest of the day telling stories to....Ha!

This forum is not the only place in the horse world where people joke about the "evilness" of ponies. . .or the stubborness of mules. . .or "those crazy Thoroughbreds." Pick any breed, any size, any type of equine and there is likely a stereotype about it.

Hey my pony just logged on and read this and I have to tell you he is pretty depressed. Since when can't ponies read? sheesh

^^^

If you take it seriously, yes. But if you look at it from our point of view (being that we are just joking around), it's nothing. Taking everything seriously will take years off your life you know! *Wags finger* If I took every insult to mules seriously, I would be in a dark place right now.

And for all anyone knows, the original post containing that word could have very well been a typo. Stranger things have happened.

You know, my Dad always said that God must have known what he was doing when he made horses. The bigger they are, the more mellow and friendly they tend to be and the smaller they are, they are more obnoxious and harder to handle. I can only imagine if John (18hh, 2100lb perch) acted like I have seen many shetlands act like, he would have killed me years ago.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

haha, I actually own a Shetland and I didn't take offence. It's just a joke playing on the stereotypical shetland.

Here's some info on the OP's method of choice...

It sounds like it was a program in horsemanship originally designed with youth, and children in mind...THUS the name "think like a pony"...

Heck,

I was kind of thinking of hitting you up to be one of the instructors.

Now we are going to need a bunch of the gals to do all the work and keep the food coming.
I have got all the horses so all I have to figure out is the lessons and someone to make the fancy halters that we can sell for a hundred dollars a piece!
