A Quick Thought

All of my riders are quite bright and perceptive and that is certainly true of Amanda. Yesterday she told me that she had gotten Joe Camp's great book on natural horsemanship and natural horse care, The Soul of A Horse, for Christmas.
She said, "I think that anyone who has a horse and keeps it stabled would feel very guilty after they read a few chapters of that book."
Oh, would that that were true. Books like this will drive the the revolution in horse care the same way Thomas Paine's pamphlet, Common Sense, drove the American Revolution. It is impossible to over estimate the potential good that books like Camp's can do for horses.

I just heard today that one of the Mill Swamp Family was killed in a hunting accident. The sadness of this must be unbearable. Lido was a very gifted young man. He had a keen sense about the horses and so much knowledge of hunting and fishing. The young riders seemed to admire his abilities. I met Lido several times but knew more of him through Terry.She shared often how he amazed her with his horse sense. I am so sorry Nelson, Steve, Rebecca, Emily and family and the Mill Swamp community for the loss of your son, brother, uncle and friend.
