E is for Equestrian Economics - Turf-y's A-Z Rules of Horsemanship

Equestrian economics are simple. To make a big pile of money in horses, you simply start with a bigger pile and watch it dwindle.

It’s elementary, my dear.

Every equine enthusiast agrees, or nearly so.

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. Or not.

  1. Oh my that is true. Especially if you live in a rural area like me and you have kids who work all year to enter the completions at the county fair. Not talking about me, but a couple of my friends have children who have been doing it for years.

  2. Oh love horses, saw a beautiful Italion white the other day, gorgeous!

  3. I agree.. hopefully you have the bigger pile to start with!! LOL!!
