And now, a break from your regularly scheduled hive report.

MiKael over at her blog has begun writing a piece about Arabian halter and the fact the many people see it as a bad thing.

A recent post at MiKael's blog links to a video which shows some "abused" horses showing halter. I haven't seen the video, so I can't comment on it.

Mikael is absolutely correct that there are all kinds of trainers - good and bad, kind and abusive. This is true for halter,
