The Ballad of Lucille Mulhall, America's Original Cowgirl

And what have we now in campus arenas and elsewhere?
Too many women cowed easily and 'men' just cowardly.
It seems the new normal is the herd instink.

Horses, like dogs, are remarkably intelligent animals and they respond to touch, voice and mood as well as the vibe or aura we all give off. Some are tough guys, some are playful and silly minded, timid, lazy, actors and some are so attentive and inquisitive that if you can find one like that you can do nearly anything with them. Apart from those traits, most of them just love human interaction and will seek it.

But you have to be able to recognize these personality traits in horses and dogs to make the connection so that you can move forward and as a young guy I worked around horses for a long number of years.

During that time I knew several young girls who could handle a horse as well as any man and some of those lovelies could wrap a pony around her gentle fingers. Pure magic.

Most people it seems severely underestimate the potential and capacity for most animals.

Afterall, they've been here longer than us.

And the first MF that says, "Yeah, but how many of them have made a computer or a car!", gets punched right in the face TWICE!

(nobody makes a computer of a car, they are made by huge "systems")
