A different kind of "Andalusian... 

As my light dims that of my children starts to shine...
'traded a few of my guitars for this, "Bella" an 11 year old dressage trained Andalusian for my girl.

Yes, two beauties!

My daughter's first ride was at age 2 1/2 with our neighbor on one of the Arabians they bred. She was hooked.

From age 6 she was a show jumper. The relationship between her and her big thoroughbred was one of the 20th century's great love affairs. They trusted and supported one another.

My daughter learned a lot about gaining a skill, about competition, and about weathering both adversity and success.

They are very much into horses here in Huelva. (El Rocio is in Huelva province) And the Andalucian breed is very pretty. When i walk the dogs, we meet a lot of them. Unfortunately they dont run around. The are left in the grass fields with a long leash and a short piece of rope between their two front legs, so thet they can only move around in circles very slowly.

at last, a horse thread! nice pics GJ

I discovered another "different kind of Andalusian" when my granddad was telling me about his dad's favourite breed of chicken.
At first I thought he was saying "Blue Hand Ilusion" (them old country accents....) but the birds were actually "Blue Andalusian".
(They a bit cheaper to keep Kudo )

RE: A different kind of "Andalu... (in reply to gj Michelob

Makes you want to emphasize about the value of having kids grow up in love to animals ( with horse riding naturally being a major dream. - Me was so nuts about it that my parents kept telling me how my grandma had horses and that I could be having one sometime, which never happened).

- Thus, one of the things I could not understand was to hear that my mother and her siblings in their detouched ways of living never used their family┬┤s horses to ride. They were not even wanting to.

Anyway, growing up appreciative of animals, better even as animal lover has substantial effects on a person.
I am further convinced that who grows up without, indifferent and unfeeling, has hardly a chance to become a humane character. Feeling with fellow creatures has always been a treat with human beings, and it is essential for fully developing the empathetical skills that actually make homo sapiens human.

And empirics back me up.
Look around at spheres where people treat animals as mere objects, at best unfeeling and often times tormenting. Than look at typical values in regard of socializing, mentality and crime. There is an undeniable connection.
Being unsocial and criminal after all has all to do with stunted empathetical skills and retarded emotional intelligence.

Who wants kids to become fine chaps is better up with helping them discover love to the speechless and exposed. It will pay back tenfold.
- And you won┬┤t be of those parents whose offspring feels nuisance with an obligation to look after you, or who without obligation disappears when you need them at old age.


Having been badly defrauded and trying to make out some indicators, I had to realize that you just can┬┤t look into people┬┤s head.
However, chances for sincerity are way better with people who show empathetic skills and hence are animal lovers.
-

Congratulations to the new friend! :O)
Your doughter is visibly having such sensation and fun, it might well contribute to prolong her potential life span for an extra decade or so.

Minus the guitars and cash, you're a far richer man today.

Well said, Sean.

There is nothing in the world that lifted my spirit as much as my daughter's sweet, grateful hug, as her dreams came true and ran down her face.
