Year of the Horse

Posted in My Thoughts at 9:58 pm by Thomas

Interestingly enough, on the Chinese calendar, this is the “Year of the Horse” which of course I take as a good sign for Kentucky, but really everyone should take as a good sign for a year.  The horse is a very noble and inspiring creature so that holds great promise for this year.  Of course what I suspect most of us are hoping for in this new year, is warmer weather, not that we should be too surprised by getting an old fashioned snowy winter from time to time.  Now I believe in the old adage, that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and this weather will soon give way to a beautiful Kentucky Spring that will smell that much sweeter when the Dogwoods are in bloom.  For me I am waiting with great anticipation for the warm weather of Spring and the Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event which for us represents the kickoff to so many horse events and activities.  So just remember, Spring is only 32 days away and you have the endurance of the horse on your side to make it to the finish of the marathon winter.
