Oooo my tooth got tugged on today, and I'm really in pain! I accidentally hooked my big left canine tooth on Geoffrey's collar while we were playing, and it almost got pulled out. I think it's going to be okay, but it sure did hurt! Jane says I have to go to the doggie dentist. I hate the dentist. Do you? I hear most people really fear the … Read more »

Honesty is an interesting concept. Most of us horses are truly honest. We don't know how to be any other way. But people, well, not so much. Most people believe they are honest. But often humans are simply justifying their behavior and calling it honesty. If they really looked at what was going on, they'd probably realize they were either … Read more »

Responsibility. It's a big part of life. Jane tells her students that their horses should be responsible for their own gaits. They shouldn't repeatedly ask or nag at their horses, or they'll just get tuned out and ignored. She says your horse should respond to the first request, and should maintain his or her gait until asked to do something … Read more »

I got in trouble today. I was home alone when I smelled the most wondrous smell! I know I shouldn't, but I put my paws up on the kitchen counter and there it was! An entire chicken! It was frozen, but it smelled so good! Before I could stop and think about what I was doing, I grabbed it and pulled it onto the floor. I shredded the plastic and was … Read more »

I had trouble sleeping last night. I'm about to start the new show season, and I started fretting about being ready. Now that I'm showing at Grand Prix, I'm worried that I won't be able to keep up with the up and coming younger horses. Then I realized that I had put my negative musings into a future that's not here yet. I always pride myself at … Read more »

I love to wrestle. It's so much fun. I love to play with my dog friends, but I especially love to wrestle with Jane. I'm very careful with my teeth, because I know they can hurt her. Friends don't hurt friends. At least, not on purpose. Have you ever been hurt by a friend? It's so much more painful than being hurt by a stranger. That's … Read more »

There's a whole lot that goes on in this world that we never hear about. Some of it is bad, but a lot of it is good. If you could measure the bad against the good, you'd find that the good stuff far outweighs the bad stuff. How do I know? As a horse, I'm very connected to the energy of the planet. I can feel what's going on because I am totally … Read more »

I'm so excited to get to visit my friends back in Florida! It's been a long summer without them. The cat isn't nearly as much fun as my Florida barn friends! Besides, in Florida, we have a POOL! Do you like to swim? I love it. It's terrific exercise. Some of my friends were afraid of the water, but we helped them get over it. Dogs are natural … Read more »

Fall is so beautiful in Vermont, USA. We have lots of trees, and they turn the most incredible colors. I only see yellow, green, and blue, but the many shades of yellows are amazing. I hear red and orange are really striking, but I have no way of relating to that. Like all horses, my eye structure doesn't let me see red. I heard a fellow at the … Read more »

I came in the house with my long tawny coat full of nasty burrs. Jane spent an hour pulling the prickly things out of my hair. It hurt sometimes, when she'd pull on just a few hairs, but I knew she was trying to help me so I gritted my teeth and tolerated it. Sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do. Like go to the doctor or the … Read more »
