Two brains. That's right, I have two brains. So do you. The difference is, you have a bundle of nerves called the corpus collasum between the two halves of your brain that lets the sides chat. My brain doesn't have that. It's true that my brain, or brains, have a very difficult time talking to each other. For a horse, this means I have to be … Read more »

Thank you, to all of you who sent your ideas about where the cat hid my stuffed toy friend, Lobby the Lobster. I've not found him yet, but I think we're getting closer. Some of you said you thought he was on the roof. Rhett got a ladder and climbed up to check but Lobby wasn't there. We also checked on top of the refrigerator, under the … Read more »

A terrible thing happened today, and I'm really struggling to get over it. There was a loud hissing sound that hit my nervous system with a scream that said, "RATTLE SNAKE!" I was so startled, I jumped sideways really hard and fast, and unseated Jane! Her off balance body clinging to my side triggered, "MOUNTAIN LION!" in my brain. So, I bucked. … Read more »

I'm posting signs all over the neighborhood. "Lost, one stuffed red lobster. Contact Indy." The cat won't tell me where he is. She implies that she knows, but she won't tell. I'm so frustrated! I tried being nice to her, even gave her one of my dog biscuits, but she just purrs and struts away. I think she enjoys teasing me. SO... I'm going to … Read more »

I'm a song and dance man. I howl in B-flat. I love to tap dance on the tile in the front hall, though I do my best dancing in front of the cupboard where the dog biscuits are stored. My best singing is done late at night when the coyotes stop by our place. We have a nice quartet performance at least once a week. Occasionally we're even on … Read more »

Jane says I'm too serious, and need to play more. She told me I should relax and enjoy life. I used to think she was crazy. I have lots of work to do, and I didn't think I should waste time playing around. Dressage is serious business ya' know, and I have to be PERFECT. But Jane taught me that dressage should be FUN first, and serious … Read more »

Jones. Indiana Jones. Also known as Double-K-Nine. KK9! I'm a secret agent dog. Oops! I wasn't supposed to tell you that. Don't say anything! It will be our secret. I guess I'll have to deputize you as a Double H so you'll be obligated to keep quiet. Do you prefer yours shaken or stirred? I take mine diced with a touch of gravy. I'm on a … Read more »

I see blue sky, green grass, and yellow flowers. I can't see red apples as my eyes perceive the color red as deep gray. I've been told that it's because horses have a different eye structure from humans and can only see things in blues, yellows, and greens. My eyes don't have the cones to produce the colors red, purple, or orange. When you look … Read more »

I have the most beautiful buff colored coat. It's soft and sleek in the summer, when I'm done shedding. Jane and Rhett like to brush me, making my silky hair shine. I love to be brushed. It's one of the loving things they do for me that helps me to know they love me. Do you have people in your life whom you love? I'll bet you do. How do you show … Read more »

Black and white. Yes and no. Up and down. Sickness and health. Positive and negative.... We live in a world of contrast. It's the duality of Nature that makes up our physical world. Without that contrast, we wouldn't be able to perceive. It's in knowing dark that we can recognize light. It's in being able to experience silence that we can hear … Read more »
