Racehorse barns at feeding time
might look like assembly lines
as the cart heads down the shedrow
and grooms scoop grain into

look at horses, and you see the horses that
you want to carry more weight vs. the ones
that are carrying too much weight.”

more than horses just beginning to train,
laid up by injury, or being rested.
