Yeehaw! I get to go swimming! The pool is open for dogs today and a bunch of my friends are coming over to play catch the ball in the water. Rhett is going to take me and has loaded all my toys in the pool bag. Rhett's a great ball thrower. I just love swimming! It's my favorite thing! Sometimes, after a long day in the pool, I get muscle sore. … Read more »

All those things make you feel good right? I used to think so. I used to compliment all the other horses in the barn, thinking I would be helping their self esteem by reminding them how great they are. But, new studies indicate that this may not be the case. An article by Po Bronson, posted in New York Magazine, states that certain types of … Read more »

I've decided I want to be on Dancing with the Stars. I've never seen a dog on the show, and I think it's time. Don't you think so? Jane likes to dance, and sometimes we dance around the house together. My foxtrot is better than her's, but her waltz is better than mine. We practice so we both can be better dancers. I wonder if they will reply to my … Read more »

I was thinking about how slippery it is out on the wet grass, and sure enough, I slipped. I was thinking about how angry that gelding at the end of my stall row makes me, and sure enough I became angry. I was thinking about how I sometimes get a headache when a storm comes, and sure enough, I got a headache. I keep saying that what you think … Read more »

I've put on a few pounds over the holidays. When Jane wasn't looking, some friend of her's shared some cookies with me. I swiped a few candy canes off the barn's Christmas tree and stole half a bag of horse treats someone had left on the floor. Now I'm feeling a bit heavy and uncomfortable. When I complained to Moshi, he suggested I try Jonathan's … Read more »

A friend of mine in Australia wrote to me this week, expressing her excitement about learning dressage after a career on the race track. She had been a bit discouraged at her progress because she was used to being successful on the track mostly by her strong will and a strong hand. Neither are very conducive to an artful picture of riding. Once she … Read more »

Yesterday I went swimming with my friend Chance, when I got a mouthful of water and nearly choked! It scared me for a minute. It hurt, and I couldn't breathe. Chance was worried too. He stayed right beside me and made sure I got out of the water okay. It was really nice of him. Chance is one of those fellows who is always there for me. He's a … Read more »

There are a bunch of new dogs at our Florida barn this year. I met a few of them yesterday. I felt a little shy and out of place. They've already bonded in a ''pack" and weren't sure they wanted me to join in. One of them snapped at me, and they all ran off leaving me standing alone. I struggled with hurt feelings and a sense of isolation. It … Read more »

Focus. It's the most driving force in anyone's success. Oh sure...Occasionally there are successes that just fall into your lap. But that is incredibly rare. Focus is one of those things that creates opportunity. It creates a vibration of success. The energy of the Universe aligns with your vision, and you become unstoppable. I decided I wanted … Read more »

What makes the difference between success and failure? Not reaching your goal is often as simple a matter as giving up too soon. I've seen this over and over in dressage competition. Someone has a bad day in the ring, and they give up in frustration. They get so upset they scratch from the rest of their classes. It may have been a simple … Read more »
