March 1 Equine Astrology Tip of the Day

Tuesday March 01 Equine Astrology TOD: Whenever you ask your horse for something, it is said, ask him by a favor. Does this mean we'll owe him if he says yes? Won't matter today as all our asking comes to naught. Superficial pleasantries succeed where requests for performance may fail. Stick to trail riding while singing the theme song to "Mr.Ed" and we won't be disappointed.

Sat 2/26 Equine Astrology Tip of the Day

Half the failures in life, notes Thomas Hood, arise from pulling in one's horse as he is leaping. If we're guilty of this today the fault, to paraphrase The Bard, isn't in us, it's in the stars. Energy levels fluctuate wildly. Best be prepared for stopping when we want to go, and vice-versa.

Equine Astrology Tip of Day

Tuesday, February 15 Equine Astrology Tip of the Day: History, said Twain, doesn't repeat itself--but it does rhyme.

Now where did we put those notes? ...

Sunday 2/13 Equine Astrology Tip of Day

Sunday 2/13 Equine Astrology Tip of the Day: Smart riders won't sleep in this Sunday as productivity peaks early. Imagination rules latter part of day, with a bit of rebelliousness thrown in--which means, if we make any unplanned dismounts, we can make snow angels (assuming nothing's broken).

Made snow angels in the snow drift by front of my barn earlier this week, and the two Ay-rabs on the property snorted and spooked at them! Goofs. (Next time I'll make a snow mountain lion or something ...).
