Horses and Life, It's All the Same to Me

These are the words of cowboy Buck Brannaman. Good ol’ cowboy wisdom. Ok, so Buck may not help any of us with choosing singles for a pick six carryover. But as one of the original “horse whisperers” he certainly can enlighten us on “reading “and understanding our equine friends, and how, in turn, this knowledge can richly impact our lives.

A winner at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the documentary “Buck” will soon be coming to a theater near you. More on the film can be found at

“Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses-and people- with his understanding, compassion and respect. The animal - human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life.”

Just like the words of wisdom from Winston Churchill “There is something about the outside of a horse that’s good for the inside of a man” - we can all use a dose of that.

Tonight’s NTRA Night School IS about Pick Six Strategies, however. I haven’t participated yet, but maybe it’s worth stopping by.
