Yep, had a lot To do with Turners over the years.
My first horse was a 15hh Arab who had the softest canter, it was like being in an arm chair.
My Dad ended up breeding thoroughbreds and rode a quarterhorse. Speed and agility v pure speed and stamina. He had an easy approach with horses which
bode well in their handling, floating and veterinary needs.
I even worked with a saddler at one stage and in a saddlery as well.
Funnily it was just recently, whilst driving home at 1:30 am we came across a big bay gelding and a palamino Shetland pony ... standing in the middle
of two lanes in a 50 mph zone ! ( 80 kph )
Good thing I had experience and was able to lead them off the road to a safe spot and phone police ...
I call them Turners ... as they turn good feed into pooh !
I love most animals but horses hold a special place. So big and strong, yet so fragile !
