1. Surprise!



Did the pup ever move to a new home? Maybe not.

2. I hear their beer is awful...

But damn it, they make the most heart-warming commercials ever...

Thanks, Joani, for these.

4. I saw those Clydesdales at Busch Gardens years ago.

They are huge but so beautiful.

5. I remember standing next to a Clydesdale when I was 6 years old. It was huge!

8. And so very careful and gentle.

It may be much due to training but I have seen other draft type horses of their size and they seem to be very careful with their movements so as not to step on anyone....Or a smaller animal.

Smaller horses seem to step on you accidentally on purpose, or lean their weight into you against a wall.

9. It may be training or it may come naturally.

When I was 18, I lived on a ranch where horses were boarded. I know exactly what you mean about horses leaning on you. I learned to move quickly in the barn.

12. And be mindful where you bend over.

A horse once head butted me...on my backside right into a smelly patch of slimy mud.

He seemed particularly amused and pleased with himself.

They are like 500 lb three year olds.

It's almost impossible to get angry with them.


on edit patch not path.

13. Some things are part of our collective memory.

In some cultures that means remembering the songs and names of the ancestors.

In our culture every last one can sing the song of Gilligan's Island and our bologna has a first name.

USA! USA!
