Thought, fact and quote for the day 29/10/12

Thought 4the day: Sometimes we in life wear blinkers not just the horses you see in harness. We might decide to turn a blind eye to perhaps a bad habit like crib biting or perhaps a child shouting at a horse because the pony did not do as told. Perhaps the child should of asked? If we teach all the way we have learnt over the years imagine what a brighter life horses and ponies would have? I am ve...ry strict with my daughers around the horses but sometimes i feel that they have become too independant around the horses here as baing in mind not all are happy to see you when they first come in! One instance was when i was assesssing danny i had tacked him up and walked away to get my hard hat. Now his 17.2. I came back and found god knows how my daughter of 11 at the time had somehow god knows how clambered up and undone him and was riding him around the car park!!!!! Like most parents my heart was in my mouth but i know my daughters seems to know how to help the horses. Follow your instincts as well as your heart....
Fact 4the day: A strapper is a British English term, mostly used in Australia, for a person holding a position looking after racehorses. The duties range from cleaning out the stables and yards, feeding, grooming and rugging horses, plus saddling horses for track-work and races, hence the name. Relevant vocational qualifications include Horse Care and Saddlery.

In North America, these tasks are lumped into the general job category of "groom," though saddling may be a task assigned to more experienced grooms while stall cleaning and walking hot horses are tasks assigned to the less-experienced stablehand.
Quote 4the day: Open your eyes, clear your mind, remove all the things that should and shouldn't and see your friend for who they are not what you or others expect. Then except and fly together...
