Balancing Act

reply

The life of a racehorse trainer is ruled by money. Generally, trainers are in a constant state of drowning financially, only able to take an easier breath if their horses are winning and making enough money to pay the bills. Trainers who aren't fortunate enough to have high class horses usually just manage to scrape out an existence, and hopefully break even every month if things go well.

After a horse trains each day, the horse's groom will wrap the horse's legs in what are called 'standing bandages,' to both protect his lower legs, and often to administer liniment or other treatments to help counteract inflammation in his tendons and joints.

Like the change of art from Chess. The B&W look really adds a touch of class in my book, too.
