Not officially on sabbatical anymore, but still living the sabbatical life!
Nice Horse impression Jaybob!!! I always wondered about the whole cobble stone thing. It makes sense when you look at it from the perspective of a horse with a heavy load going up a steep incline. I know from growing up and riding horses that unshoed is the best since a horses "feet" are very sensitive. But traction is a whole other issue. Flat or a hill, a horse can only haul so much weight before it becomes taxing on their body. I am sure you could feel the difference if you were to to go up a hill without shoes versus carrying your dad on your shoulders:-) xooxooxxo
Very interesting.You must be learning a lot and I am learning a lot by viewing your material. Thanks for doing it.
Yes the cobble stone slanting effect makes a lot of sense when you look at it from the side of a horse we read about it in a pamphlet we got about the castle.
It is really fun telling everyone what we have been doing
So Zachary - where you on a horse sideways when you checked out the cobblestones? "When you look at it from the side of a horse" :-) I hope Jaybob got it on video because that would be pretty darn awesome!!!
no none of us were on a horse sadly
