Wow that was amazing!

Wish I had it a week or two ago.
It’s very funny because it’s the exact same thing I was thinking
as I was riding my bike up the hill this morning.
Only I was thinking about a horse and an ellectric fence
and how if you take down the ellectric fence the horse still stays in the same area
because the horse no longer knows what it’s like to be free
and has found its comfort zone.
