Remember a few days/weeks ago I posted a contest with an untitled poem?? "A little contest"
well first of all OOPS! I forgot all about it ! So sorry . The title I chose , just felt right "A Guy Like that" Suggested by Ann Nichols .Thanks to all for your suggestions, and I hope you wont mind if a few of them have possibly triggered my muse and may get poems of their own in time. I will give whoever's title inspired the poem credit of course.
So Ann , email could you and we will work out how best to get you your prize.
On to the next thoughts.Interesting insights on the last post, and certainly some excellent points. As far as breeding/overbreeding ,I agree to a point , a breeder myself ,I do not think we need to STOP all breeding , but we do need to be mindful of the situation and the state of the horse market in general . While I strongly believe Hybrid Vigour is a very positive effect of cross breeding , I am not sure part bred stock ,unregistered etc is quite as marketable, unless well trained.
That said , neither of the parties I talked about in my last post are currently breeding, nor have they for the past few years. The purebred breeder, has only 1 that I am aware of under the age of 3 and has not bred again this year .They have chosen to background their stock( raise them get them going under saddle )prior to sale .
Anyhow, I am still working on things and if anyone wants further info , email me K? firstname.lastname@example.org
What would you do
If you saw someone needing
on any given day
Would you reach out a hand? or
just turn away?
Would you question the right to be who they are
would you step up and help
or frown from afar
Would you leap straight to
without asking why
assume they are failing,
from failing to try
When you see someone needing
what would you do
ask yourself now
if that someone was you ?
Have a wonderful Wednesday , and as always ,stay safe
