Mustering of the Horse Locomotion, action, or the ability to examining the wind. Since in the lat niovo. represents the real value of (lie) tor respect wo must depend largely horse, and coiisetiuoittly too much at- tention cannot bo given to this fact- or. It la, therefore, as important to kno'w how a horse should bo properly shown in action, as it is to know how he should not be shown. Kveu at our fairs it is rathor remarkable to note the indifference to this point so fre- quently displayed by the average judge.

Now, regards the correct way of mustering a horse as against the in- correct way, it must he admitted that tho responsibility does not exclusive- ly rest with ignorance or tricklness on the part of the person who hap- pens to be the groom, becauee correct mustering can only bo obtained when cry sound. We should, however, re- member that some horses, especially stallions, may normally breathe rath, fir audibly when disuirbed or while in action, in which case experience only can decide. In conclusion I cannot refrain from relating an occurrence which furnish, es a good illustration of a universal the horse has been properly taught j tendency, although it happened some from his earliest youth.
