I’ve always heard that the outside of a horse can do something wonderful to the inside of a man, and I truly believe it.
Today’s story is all about horses and ourselves as being one, or you could fill in the blank — instead of horses, it could be cows, or dogs, or you get the gist.
I’ve always been in awe of Buck Brannaman, the pure cruelty he came up in and how his life turned out, despite all odds. It’s a lesson in itself that no matter what hand of cards life deals you, you have a choice with what you can do with it. Of course, you can allow yourself to wallow in it or hide in it, that’s the easy way out, never making a difference, that’s the avenue most people take, but it’s all up to you, you have that option, you have the pulse.
