Quote 4the day: before you do things see it thru your horses eyes first..
Fact 4the day: The Karabakh horse (Azerbaijani: Qarabağ atı), also known as Karabakh, is a mountain-steppe racing and riding horse. It is named after the geographic region where the horse was originally developed, Karabakh in the Southern Caucasus, an area that is de jure part of Azerbaijan but the highland part of which is currently under the control of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic. The breed is... noted for its good temper and speed. For example, in 2004 a Karabakh horse named Kishmish from the Agdam stud in Azerbaijan set a speed record by running 1000 metres in 1 minute 9 seconds, and 1600 metres in 1 minute, 52 seconds.
The breed is thought to be a cross-breeding of Akhal-Teke, Persian, Kabarda, Turkoman, and Arabian horse. It also influenced the development of the Russian Don horse in the 19th century. At present, the Karabakh is bred mainly in Azerbaijan's Shaki region. Currently the breed numbers are below 1,000 and it is threatened with extinction
Thought 4the day: Sometimes we need to see things through a horses or ponies eyes to understand why they react in certain ways to certain situations. It could be from a bad memory, it could simply be they get a bad feeling about that area or object what ever it may be. We need to learn to adjust to assist their needs not shape them into a box that we think should fit. A square should be in a square box not rammed into a circle or triangle!!!!! Be friends and companions and let the friendship blossom with understanding..
