Don't yell at your horses; it will make you red in the face. Don't hit your horse with the bridle when you turn him loose in the field. Don't let your colt run unhonued all winter to an old straw stack to toughen him. Don't place your main reliance on dogs and stones when driving your horses to or from pasture. Don't forget when dealing with them that a little temper is a good thing-so good that you should never lose it. Don't forget when breeding that the law of reproduction, as laid down in the first chapter of Genesis, has not yet been abrogated. Don't pasture your cults, if you cant help it, in a field where the fence is just about high enough to teach them to jump nicely. Don't hitch him at first to a load which the other horses cannot pull when he holds back or which makes them hold back when he pulls. Don't neglect to occasionally take an ear of corn along when going through the pasture, whether you wish to catch a horse or not.--Chicago Horseman. enr Way. Ihe was dressed in the very finest stylt.
