Whatever Bitter Brew you Are Drinking: Be Careful Where You Seek Knowledge
Recently, I have been dipping my toe into pages and forums dedicated spreading knowledge about all things equine. As a result I have a strong need to wash my feet. I am shocked at how much misinformation and rank, raw hostility permeates these places.
The person who yells the loudest is generally the one who knows the least.
To everyone seeking to learn, consider your sources. Go to established voices of natural horsemanship and avoid vulgar hatemongers.
Read Dorrence, Anderson, Brannamen, Miller, and Hunt. Then you will have a solid enough base to separate wheat from chaff.
Don't seek a glass of cold water from a sewer.
Learn lyrics from those who sing, not from those who scream.
