A Little Lesson about Horses........

In my younger years, I spent a Lot of time around Horses. Wrangling, a bit of Cowboying, and a bunch of just plain riding.

When you spend time with Horses, you learn a lot about them, and I mean more than the difference between a foreleg and a fetlock. Horses don't need People to survive. When properly "socialized", a Horse becomes a powerful "tool" and a strong "friend".

You treat your Horse with gentleness and respect, and he'll do just about anything for you. If you forget that he is a highly intelligent creature, (albeit in a much different way than a Human), and that their are limits to what he will take, you just might be reminded of just how puny you are.......

This fellah, *spell a$$hat*, learned that lesson.

When I watched it, I saw with my ADD mind, a rather fitting metaphor for the American People and their Government. Heh, and yet seriously.

Our "Leaders" continue to force their ideas on Us in ways not unlike the Nitwit in the video. They have begun to take our intelligence and our strength as a People for granted. They think that they are "top of the food chain" sort of smart.

They've abandoned a gentle guidance for the Good of All, for the strong hand of "Governing without Representing". Yes, a bit different than "without Representation".

They promise the world as a Utopia, and then when elected, become the self serving a$$hats that we see in Washington, Representing no one but themselves.

Maybe it's time for a quick, hard kick in the teeth to those folks in Washington with their puny little whip. Maybe changing to someone who understands the needs of the Horse......

We'll see.

A horse is like a car, but with attitude.

If you forget that it is closer in size to your car than to you, you're in trouble. ;^p

Yep - comments are working but now there is no video. Is it just me?

Foxfier, formerly Sailorette said...

Works for me.

Lets just say someone found out why whipping a horse from JUST at the perfect angle to take his hooves in the chin is a bad idea.

DammitWomann said...

Never mind Wollf - video is now working.

*runs out from under the black cloud over her head*

I think the horse deserves a whole bunch of carrots as a treat! The young man.... a whole bunch of whoop ass.....

Assuming he survived that, I think he got said can.

Watching that video makes me want to kick the guy in the teeth, too.
He deserved what he got.

You could see that one coming even before he hit the horse, the horse was backing up for the kick so maybe the hitting was going on for a while, eh?

That hadta hurt!
