In this episode, Joe Camp discusses detail and science of how he takes care of his horses. His passion leads him to research, reason, and be scientific in all aspects of a horse’s life — just as we should with our children and our students (and our dogs and out cats and our pets).
Thinking about and spending time with horses gives us a detached way to learn to be passionate and scientific with an animal, a living thing, both friend and family. Then we can be as Phoebe Child, Head of the Montessori Trust in London, said of the Montessori teacher: “we must be prepared to wait patiently like a servant, to watch carefully like a scientist, and to understand through love and wonder like a saint.”
-how he and his wife Kathleen got into horses
-how he trains horses, and the successes this gives him beyond what many ever achieve
-how he feeds horses, and why — it’s science, not convention!
-why he has his horses barefoot, and the “conventional science” claim that sparked his research into horse shoes and best practices
-what he thinks about stalls, and why the nature of the horse dictates what Joe does with his horses
