Making of the Horse
Last week, we talked about our babies. This week, let's talk about our greenies. Who trained your horse? Is your ponykins still in the process of figuring out this whole monkey-on-my-back thing, did you send off for thirty or sixty or ninety days, or did you buy a horse with all the bells and whistles? Who has helped your horse become what he or she is today?
Simply put, I don't know. Max had several owners before me. He seems to know quite a bit, but was rusty on everything when I got him. Plus, he has the intelligence that is characteristic of the breed. So he can really take advantage of the person if they let him.
