My remarks were wiped away before I had a chance to finish my post. Maybe Ms. Haley would like to wipe out every single utterance from that dastardly period in history our country went through which, incidentally, is what every country in the entire world has been through. Just give us some chains and maybe self-flagellation might satisfy those who are in a perpetually in a state of being "OFFENDED". Next thing to is the old rebel song, Dixie. I would bet my virginity that also offends too.

I always wondered why a fine horseman like Pat Parelli started right away putting his wife up front trying to pass her off as a horse trainer. She clearly can not train a horse. I have seen her in videos several years ago when Pat would give a demonstration and then have her show off her (lack of) ability. I see she is no better at it today than she was back then.
Sure! And I'll bet his first law for his so called "Open Society" is gun control. He is the money behind puppet Obama.
A friend of mine has a very nervous horse that spooks a lot. She hired a "trainer" to work with the horse. I call this type of trainer the biggest coward that ever sat a horse. The man was afraid of the horse (but more than likely not afraid to accept money). His "method" is to saddle the horse and take it to a round pen and proceed to chase this animal without mercy around and around the pen to get the horse tired. Apparently this trainer feels safer if he can force this horse into sustained physical overexertion. I just happened to stop by the horse's stall shortly after this village idiot had put him up. I have never seen a horse that soaked with sweat before. The poor animal was wet from his poll to his hoofs. The "trainer" had tied the horse where he could get only limited water (thank goodness he had brains enough to do that). It is January and the horse was standing in his stall which is the last one and the door to the barn was open and it was not cold but there was a definite chill in the air. There was no blanket or warmth and the poor horse was as nervous as a cat. I was horrified, but when I went to get the owner, she saw nothing wrong with his methods of training. Such treatment, I would think, would make this horse a prime target for colic. I would have called a vet to have his hooves checked for laminitis and I might be way out in left field, but could such treatment cause injury to that horse's larynx and leave him a roarer? What does everyone think about such treatment to subdue a horse? I think it is abuse at its highest form. Apparently the owner thought I was wrong. A horse is a living thing. It has a heart and lungs that are subject to permanent damage if forced into more work that it can handle. Imagine being on a job and a boss making you work until you were so exhausted but you could not stop or slow down. Sad.

I am eighty one years old.
I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas, the second of four girls in my family. I married a young man in the US Air Force and we traveled to Ankara, Turkey; Kadena AFB, Okinawa, Shiroi AFB, Japan; Elmendorf AFB, Alaska and San Vito Air Station, Italy. The travel was great. I love horses and enjoyed riding for many years. After retiring, I began to write about Russia, a place I have always been fascinated with. Catherine the Great seemed such a mystery. As a young German princess, how did she become Empress of Russia? I began to read about Catherine and her story was so unique that I wanted to write about her in novel form.
I feel very fortunate to say that I have published two books on Amazon/Kindle. I am working on a third novel. My new book will be another fiction based on fact novel from seventeenth century Russia.
I write historical fiction. I like to spend a lot of time on research to give my work a touch of reality.
