I’ve been an avid reader of Horsetalk for some years but have always felt the site lacked a certain – how shall I put it – equine input.
That’s where I come in.
I have given Horsetalk permission to publish my blog, provided it doesn’t impact in any way on my multimillion-dollar book deal with Simon and Schuster.
Now I know what you’re wondering. How can a horse write a best-selling biography and blog at the same time?
Well, it’s all about time management.
Even though I’m retired, life is still pretty hectic. There’s two meals a day to be consumed, as well as grazing my pasture and munching through daily lashings of lucerne and meadow hay.
Then there’s my fan club. The chicks in the adjoining paddock love me to bits – mostly due to my engaging personality and rugged good looks. Did I also mention that I’m probably one of the most modest horses you’re ever likely to meet?
There are many issues I’ll be writing about in the coming months. While I’ll be looking at some serious stuff, rest assured that most of the time my tongue will be firmly in my cheek.
Actually, my tongue is nearly always in my cheek these days as I’m running out of teeth. Hey, it happens to us all in the end!
Anyway, thanks for reading my first column. I’ll be back in a couple of days.
