I don't remember my Mom. Do you? Some of you talk to your mom all the time and others never do. Few of us horses still have contact with our mothers. In the wild it's usually just the fillies who stay in the same herd with their moms. The boys usually move out to a bachelor herd until we find (or steal) a band of girls of our own. Spring brings … Read more »

When I was a pup, I told my Mom that I wanted to be a horse. They look like they're having so much fun in that big arena in front of all those people! I like how the crowd claps when the horse and rider are finished with their test. I want people to clap for me! My mom was very wise. She told me the way to be truly happy is to be the best ME I … Read more »

One of the nice things about living in a house (as opposed to Moshi's barn) is that I get to watch TV with Rhett. I usually don't pay much attention to the TV unless there are dogs barking or cats meowing. Then I get excited and try to find them. That makes Rhett laugh. One evening I heard the little people on the TV talking about a man called … Read more »

Motivation is an interesting topic. I'm very motivated when food is involved. Just shake a can of pellets, and I'll sing and dance for you! Okay, okay. I nicker and stomp. But you know what I mean. If Jane corrects me, she always follows up by "retesting" me with the same question. The retest gives me the opportunity to be rewarded for doing … Read more »

I stepped on a little rock yesterday and bruised my foot. Ouch! It didn't hurt for very long, but it made me grumpy. Then I got bit on the neck by a big fly. It hurt! I snapped at it and bumped my nose on the fence. I was having a really bad day. I stood in the corner of my turnout feeling agitated and unhappy. Then I remembered Jane saying that … Read more »

Chance and I are really good friends. We play catch in the pool together. We keep each other company at horse shows while Rhett is busy videoing and Jane is busy coaching. And we watch each other's back so alligators can't sneak up on us in the grass. Even though we're good friends, we can be a bit competitive when we play. Rhett and Jane throw … Read more »

We're going back to Vermont soon! There are a lot of bunnies in Vermont. As always, I'll miss my friends in Florida, but I really love the tall grass and cool weather of Vermont. And the bunnies! Yea bunnies! Jane, Rhett, and I have spent every summer in Vermont for my entire life. You'd think I'd be used to the bi-annual change by now. But I'm … Read more »

Sometimes I get tired and don't feel inspired to work. Do you have days like that? I'll bet you do. And it's totally okay to take some downtime to recharge. It's like that old story about the lumberjack hacking away at a tree stump with a dull axe. Each hack at the trunk made a little dent, but the axe was so dull it didn't bite into the … Read more »

ALIENS! Aliens invaded my swimming pool! They were small, feathery, noisy things that flew RIGHT INTO MY POOL! They squawked and honked, scaring me out of my wits! I'd seen them in the sky before but never so close up. I was out numbered or I'd have chased them away. Yessir, I surely would have! Jane showed up with a camera and laughed as she … Read more »

I really like my barn. It's so cool with it's screened-in porch and big air fans. The floor is a cushy rubber brick that absorbs the impact of my steps. There's a beautiful bowl fountain with an eagle sculpture in the center that's always full of clean, cool water. I appreciate how spotless the barn folks keep the place, too! I appreciate that I … Read more »
