Good luck and wi sh you all the best and success in your efforts. Reply Mimi Gillespie on October 23, 2013 at 10:52 pm Like what you said Wendy…It is so true. That is why I feel they are good for our soles. Reply Wendy Russ on October 23, 2013 at 10:14 am I am a woman, I have mood swings, if I go out to the barn in an irritable mood, yelling at the barking dogs and such, I see the horses taking on a similar role. Zami will pin his ears and take charge of the others, Mo will kick Oso out of the barn and Oso will kick the dog! If I go into the barn and relish in the joy my horses bring me, the dogs will become quiet, and all 6 horse ears will be pointed in my direction. As I am learning this, I am making a conscious effort to put my ears forward when I enter the barn…it really helps! Reply Linda Smith on October 23, 2013 at 12:29 am My Favorite quote is: “You can’t train a horse with shouts and expect it to obey a whisper…..” By Dagobert in Letters to My Son Reply Valerie Netto on October 22, 2013 at 10:59 pm Good quote. Quotes are called quotes because they are short. The word man has been used for centuries to shorten the phrase human kind. We could take the message without splitting hairs. But then again it is fun to interact! Reply Terri Anderson on October 22, 2013 at 6:23 pm I love all these comments….I agree with them all! 🙂 Reply Eddie Davis on October 22, 2013 at 5:52 pm But sometimes, I have seen bad tempered men become good tempered men once they have worked with horses. They just got lost somewhere along the way and the horse brought them back to reality… or something…. hard to explain. Reply Liz on October 22, 2013 at 5:31 pm Horses can heal a damaged soul. I have seen angry children become calm in the presence of horses. They can sometimes give students a new chance at knowing what love is and build a positive relationship for the first time in their lives. Reply Pat LaCroix on October 22, 2013 at 4:57 pm I have known several ill mannered men who raised horses where I lived as a kid growing up. Nothing good came out of them!!! Not even their own offspring! The horses made out much better, but only after being sold to kind and loving men & women!!! Reply irisvillagegirl on October 22, 2013 at 4:57 pm Or anything else for that matter! Reply James Ditmore on October 22, 2013 at 2:54 pm There are a lot more bad tempered men than women tho and that is why the quote started in the first place! Reply Jenna MB Walker on October 23, 2013 at 6:26 pm “man” is generic Reply Wess on October 22, 2013 at 2:48 pm A BAD TEMPER in not capable of producing anything GOOD. Not Gender or Species specific. Reply Stacy on October 22, 2013 at 2:49 pm True, I guess quotes have some limitations:) Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
