I know it seems like I have forgotten my blog because I’m not writing in it any more. This neglect is not intentional; I have just not felt like writing. It’s been this way pretty much since Ike. I’ll get over it.

In the mean time, I do realize that this blog is now beginning its fifth year, and so something must be posted. But since I don’t feel like writing, I’ll let others speak for me. Here are some nice quotes about horses, beginning with one I have posted here before.

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” – Winston Churchill

“There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.” – Robert Smith Surtees

“Riding: The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground.” – Author Unknown

“A good man will take care of his horses and dogs, not only while they are young, but also when they are old and past service.” – Plutarch

“You don’t break these animals; you come to an understanding with them.” – Phil West

“The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse’s ears.” – Arabian Proverb

“He knows when you’re happy. He knows when you’re comfortable. He knows when you’re confident. And he always knows when you have carrots.” – Author Unknown
