'Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? he paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the frey. He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds. At the blast of the trumpet he snorts "Aha!" He catches the scent of battle from afar, the shout of commanders and the battle cry.' This is the Creators own description of our beloved horses. I wrote this out and posted it on Sport's stall at the farm. I love it. In it's context, it talks about a horses bravery in war, but in the same freightening circumstance, it also decribes a great show horse. For they do not know what awaits them as they charge through the show gaits!!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
