I knew I was going to be in for a fun treat when I got the announcement you were interviewing my favorite Mr. Ed. Had no idea about the peanut trick! Learned quite a few facts about horses that I wasn’t aware of. Horses were painted on cave walls by prehistoric peoples some 20,000 years ago, They were featured in the artwork of virtually all of the great empires, such as the Roman, Persian, and Macedonian empires, as well as many of history’s greatest civilizations, such as the Greek, Assyrian, Etruscan, Chinese, Indian and Scythian civilizations.

The better understanding that you have of how a racehorse is trained the easier it will be for you to retrain it. I think TVI must be develop to help people not to go to gambling. Lotto is a much greater scam ever. Gambling gives so little chance to win not like TVI that promotes team work to earn money. Hi Peggy, thank you for taking the time to read this. The writers and artists of the Great War left us a fantastic legacy of truly emotive poetry and art. If only politicians and war-mongers would take it on board, and stop sending young men and women to kill and be killed in foreign lands. The human race will never learn it seems. Of the forty horses that start the race an average of just 30% will have the stamina to complete the course. On more than one occasion horses have been killed as they tackled the notorious fences.
