    the bull will win.
    I know a cowboy "horse trainer" in Iowa that halterbreaks his range colts at 3 or 4 years old by tying them to his dually truck. After they've given up trying to get away from it standing still, he starts slowly driving, "leading" them back to his barn. Only takes a couple hours, he says.
    Sounds dangerous, I say (to the horses).

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  Bumpa (my grandfather) didn't trust horses (5+ / 0-)

      and while his mother was a talented horsewoman, he wouldn't allow one on his farm.

      As for that bull, it stood in the middle of Sugar Road (which is narrow enough that two cars coming together must drive on the shoulder to pass one another) all day. The "DeSoto Incicent" was the only solution.

      By the way: The horsewoman:


      My great-granmother, 1894-1986, at Stratford-upon-Avon, England, 1908

      The DeSoto guy:


      My grandfather, 1914-1992, in his corn field.

      Get your goddamned guns out of my church. This means you.
