Many thanks to my friends in cyberspace that sent me these two videos and a funny little story.
The videos demonstrate creative, attraction-based ways to encourage humans to get exercise and be responsible.
And a little story demonstrating a not so attraction-based sentiment:
A cowboy and his wife had just got married and found a nice hotel for their wedding night. The man approached the front desk and asked for a room.
He said, “We’re on our honeymoon and we need a nice room with a good strong bed.”
The clerk winked, “You want the Bridal?”
The cowboy reflected on this for a moment and then replied, “Nope, I reckon not. I’ll just hold onto her ears until she gets used to it.”
For me this was like a two for one. Not only was it a nice play on words, it was also a great example of habituation for both horse and human. 🙂
