Good for a giggle, see the article in ORILLIA TODAY on the Ontario Provincial Police training their horses at http://www.simcoe.com/sc/orillia/sto...-1508798c.html

Excerpt:

Larry Stewart and Lightfoot the horse are deep in thought, the two of them engaged in a silent conversation only they can hear.
A ruddy-faced Westerner, with a pleased-to-meet-you smile and a handshake to match, Stewart 'speaks' to his trusty companion without uttering a word.

"I just 'think' it," he later tells a reporter by way of explanation. Staring at the ground and avoiding eye contact with the majestic animal, Stewart mentally commands the three-year-old quarterhorse to move to his rear.

Lightfoot quietly complies, backing up and swinging his hind end around.

Gee, Annie. I clicked on this topic and browsed through the last couple of lines without reading the rest. It sure caught my attention!

This is really quite funny. About a week ago, I asked Val, who is a thoroughbred racing fan, if there was ever a horse named Lightfoot. In my opinion,it would be the ultimate name for a race horse. I think she told me there was once a horse by that name, but it had nothing to do with Gordon.

One of the writers for the Toronto Star or Toronto Sun has a beautiful white horse named Lightfoot as well.
Perfect name for a race horse (or a dancer!)

"Ya see,I've been through the desert on a horse Lightfoot named,it felt good to be out of the rain!" I couldn't resist! I think it's a cool name too. Does this mean the horse feeds on candy apples,instead of oates and hay?" I gotta get me that horse! Later!
