"For my next trick I will stick my arm through the telephone lines, grab your ear and pull you into the monitor so I can give you a great big ole hug. Your insight is priceless. Last night when I got home there was a storm brewing, so I took Belvedere into the round pen for some quick ground work. There, with dramatic cloud to ground lightning in the background, he did both Spanish Walk and Piaffe at liberty. It was a beautiful thing, a living work of art! And everything seemed worthwhile."
