    Horses are stupid. I don’t mean that horses are irritating and pointless, I mean that they have very tiny brains, magnificent beasts that they are otherwise.

    Just about everything makes me smile. Even some of the stuff that makes me angry… fact it would have to.

    I had no idea that horses have small brains. You would never think that! I worked with the horses at Camp Harlow in Eugene. It was soooo much fun!!!
