Well, I just lost a long post#%^*+*^%#.
Don't blame the horses, blame their owners, for a number of different reasons. I grow weary of listening to people talk about "their baby" and how it isn't the same horse they bought six months ago --- whose fault is that---------
One of my horses is 22 and has been with me 20 years. He is about the oneriest/conniving cuss I have ever owned. He has had more lacings in 20 years than all of my other horses put together.
These last few years, the worst I have to do is crack the buggy whip on the ground to get him back in line but I can promise you, he would be one those ill-mannered horses you describe, if I didn't stay on top of his behavior every single day, lollol.
99% of the time, I know what he is going to do before he does it. I can tell by the look in his eyes which side of the sawdust he work up on, lollol
He is a very smart horse but he has his own agenda, worse than any horse I have ever owned, lollol. I am sure he was put in my care and keeping to humble me, lollollol
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
