Clue/Question:  Seeing the bridle with its mouthpiece made the young horse – – –

Answer:  A BIT NERVOUS

(Just a bit?  If I were the horse, I’d probably wonder if I’d be able to eat with that in my mouth!  My experience with horses is fairly limited.  But I have a cousin who used to compete in rodeo events, in her younger days.  And, she’s had horses her entire life.  My uncle – her dad – was a pretty well known cowboy, in some circles.  I remember seeing him ride in a couple of the Rose Parades, with a team of Palominos!  Very cool!

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “crouc” and “gatims” in earlier Jumbles.  They all came to me quickly, but I guess “labevi” took the longest to get.  The answer letter layout was another David L. Hoyt special eleven letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic, but the final answer was a quick solve for me.

Another great cartoon from our good friend Jeff.  A fine horsie, and a great drawing of a bridle.  We Jumble devotees are lucky to have Mssrs. Hoyt and Knurek providing us with quality puzzles.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
