The Mane Point is participating again in the April A to Z blogging challenge, posting daily with alphabetical entries.For this year's A-Z event, a month of posts will offer Turfy’s A-Z Rules of Horsemanship, with all due apologies to the original Murphy of Murphy’s Law, which basically said, "If anything can go wrong, it probably will."Horse lovers may have heard some of these uncannily true, yet often ironic, statements in various forms in the past.
