Full Moon

Aha! This must be the explanation for yesterday's explosion of Elders With Attitude. (Not that we don't deal with a little of that every day, but yesterday and the night before were hideous.)
TREES often receives calls from people looking for an older horse for their children or grandchildren. The assumption is that every senior horse is well-behaved, bombproof, and "kid-safe." You know the saying. "Never Assume........" Elder horses have different temperaments just as younger horses do. Elder horses have received different levels of training, just as younger horses have. And on a windy day......or under a full moon......elder horses are more likely to have Attitude.....just as younger horses are.
