Sometimes our biggest challenges become our greatest successes. As a Friesian, I'm not built for a good canter. My breed was bred for a fancy trot to elegantly and smartly pull buggies and carts. But with determination and proper training, I was able to develop an amazing canter! My ability to do superb one tempis is one of my proudest … Read more »

I saw an alligator today! YIKES! It was the strangest thing I've ever seen! It was about two feet long, with lots and lots of ugly teeth. It had crawled out of the canal to sun itself on the path that went around the neighborhood. Oh my.. I was scared to death! It was so crazy looking! It looked like a monster! Jane didn't seem scared of it at … Read more »

Geoffrey got banned from the barn. I'm so sad! He was being really aggressive with the other dogs, and refused to behave. After several warnings, the barn manager told him his behavior had become too disruptive and he was no longer welcome. I really miss him! I've always known Geoffrey was a trouble maker, but that's one of the reasons I enjoyed … Read more »

Being different can be tough. While on one hand we all want to stand out and be unique, we also are programmed by our very nature to want to fit in. We want to belong. If you're different than the crowd, sometimes you can feel left out or "wrong." I have a good friend in Tennessee who shared his experience in being different. You see, Chester … Read more »

I want to be a bronco. I want to buck and kick and wildly throw cowboys off my back. Jane says I'm too small to be a bucking bronco, but that doesn't stop my desire. I really want to be in a rodeo and show how powerful I am!! Jane is big on doing everything we can to fulfill our dreams, no matter what they are. She told a friend about my desire … Read more »

From where my stall is situated, I can see outside to the green grass turnout pens, the main house, the inside water fountain, the wash area, and the tack room. From where my neighbor's stall is situated, he sees Paz's play area full of colorful toys, the hot walker, the wash area, the sand arena, and the gravel driveway. I say our barn is … Read more »

The dentist stopped by today. I hate the dentist. He scares me. But I know once he's floated my teeth and taken off the sharp points on my back molars, I'll be much more comfortable when I chew. It's something all horses have to deal with, so I just "man up" and let him do it. Are there things you have to do that you don't like doing? Visiting … Read more »

My friend Jazz just got a hair cut. He looks like a movie star with his puffy hair and painted toes. He knows that he's handsome, but he doesn't let it go to his head. He displays a strong, quiet dignity, like a fellow who is secure with his place in the world. I really like Jazz. And while I'm a bit jealous of his poofy white hairdo, I also … Read more »

A friend of mine was hit by a car today. She didn't make it. I'm so sad I can hardly stand it. I can't believe she is gone. Vannah was such a fun, lively friend and playmate. Her human friend is devastated and has been crying all day. The people around her have tried to comfort her, but it doesn't seem to be helping. The poor lady's heart hurts too … Read more »

A new fellow moved into the barn this week. His barn name is Joe, though his registered name is a mile long and beyond my ability to pronounce. We've had some interesting conversations. Joe's been around. He's very smart and worldly, and a really nice fellow. Joe and I watched the barn's farrier working on one of the young horses, and started … Read more »
