Bitting Rig

I received a question from last week’s Horse blog. Jill Nash asked, “I have a question about your last blog. When a horse is in a bitting rig how do they learn the release?” This is a great question! I will explain it two ways. First, when I teach a horse to tie I start [...]

Broken Record

At times I feel like I’m a bit of a broken record with this blog, but then someone I didn’t realize was reading me asks me why I started Fat Bald Cowboy. I usually just stop, smile and say because I think there’s a better way. Some people just look at me like I’m nuts. [...]

What’s Right?

Why does the greatest generation have that name? The term "The Greatest Generation" originated from Tom Brokaw's 1998 book of the same name. In the book Brokaw wrote, "It is, I believe, the greatest generation any society has ever produced." He argued that these men and women fought not for fame and recognition, but because [...]

Passion

“Passion + Purpose = Prosperity.” What is the purpose of life?  That is the age old question.  A better question is what is your life’s purpose?  Everyone talks about the one thing that makes you tick.  Do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life is another comment.   I think some [...]

Progress

Many people have sighed for the "good old days" and regretted the "passing of the horse," but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses.  ~C.W. Anderson Are we doing what is right for the horses? I believe that we should be “using” the horse for [...]

Nostalgia
