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 »

Wow! I got lots of email about Lobby! Thanks to your suggestions, I did find him! So many of you were close and a few of you were right on! Thanks for your help! Jane and I found him in the truck! He could see the sky through the windshield but never felt the rain. He was in something metal, and I couldn't open it without Jane's help. But once … Read more »

Who are you? Who are you, REALLY? Being who you really is not an easy task. I'm a Friesian, born in Holland, and imported to the USA. I'm different from most horses in that I have feathered legs. Some of the horses at the barn tease me about it, calling me an old work horse. It used to bother me, but then I heard Jane say something really … Read more »

I'm a people whisperer. A Moshi Level Five People Whisperer, to be exact. Fellow horses come to me when they are confused by their people and ask what their person really meant by their crazy people language. These poor confused horses say things like, "my person says she's the boss when on my back by directing where we go, but then moves her feet … Read more »

I ate the cat. Okay.. that's not true, but there are times when I wish I could. She makes me so mad! We've called a truce, but I'm still upset. She said she would tell me where Lobby, my stuffed lobster, is hiding, if I promise to catch a rabbit for her. The problem is, I don't actually catch the rabbits. I just chase them. I declined. Getting … Read more »

Does your horse yank you out of the saddle every few strides? If you find that happening in the walk and canter, first make sure you’re following the natural forward and back motion of your his head and neck. You don’t want to block your horse with stiff elbows. If you don’t follow his neck motion by opening and closing your elbows, he might be … Read more »
