“ You know, I have thousands of horses under my belt and lots of experience.

He's as close to having been turned into a predator as you're gonna find.
Cause he's ..., he's been wrecked.
You're nuts, for having that many Studs running together.

Most people don't need studs, and for god's sake they don't need 18 of 'em. I don't know what you're trying to proof. And if you got a lot going on in your life, probably a lot of it is a bigger story than this horse's.

You ought to be a seal team member or something, as much risk that you like to take. Why don't you learn how to enjoy your life? Life's too damn short.

This horse tells me quiet a bit about you. So this is just an amplified situation of what is. Maybe there is some things for you to learn about you. Cause you might not listen to somebody else.
Well it's alright. Sometimes I don't either and I should. Ask my wife.

I love the horses. But I've a responsibility to my fellow human, too. You know if I think maybe it might do something that could get yourself hurt and you don't even see it coming .. If I see it coming, you know I have moral obligation to say: you're in big trouble here.
Sound fair? Ok. ” - innndraaa
