It was a sleepy day today. It was so hot I just didn't feel like doing much of anything. Fortunately, Jane and Rhett were busy with other things so they didn't mind me sleeping the day away in the nice cool house. I just love my soft bed in the hallway! But now it's night and I can't sleep. I slept so much today that I'm totally rested and … Read more »

I was watching my favorite barn cat try to catch a miller moth today. She was so determined to catch that flitty creature! I couldn't help but chuckle inside when she'd leap from a hay bale and try to grab the thing, midair. She never did catch it. Watching her try so hard made me think about all the things we want to do with our lives that we … Read more »

I ate a mouse today. ICK. I didn't really mean to. I was playing in the grass and the thing jumped out of the tall brush right in front of me. Instinct took over and I lunged at it. I didn't consciously mean to catch it, but somehow I did. And before I knew it, I'd swallowed it whole. I'm feeling really bad about it, for a couple of reasons. … Read more »

She likes me! She likes me! I'm so excited! That new mare told her friend that she really thinks I'm pretty neat. She said I had the most handsome face and cutest butt in the barn. I was blushing pink through my black hair. I'll admit it's true... I do have a nice big, round hip. It's one of my best attributes. There's a joke I hear in the barn … Read more »

Setting boundaries is a hot topic among horse people. I've heard the trainers at the barn tell their students that they need to establish firm, fair, consistent boundaries with their horses. It's absolutely necessary when you're dealing with an animal who's five to ten times your size. We horses like having boundaries. It's true. One of the … Read more »

I'm a tease. I confess. I love to play hide and seek. I get a big kick out of taking things away from my friends and then encouraging them to chase me. It's a lot of fun! My friends get it that it's just a game. They do the same with me. Sometimes I'm the chaser, and sometimes I'm the chasee... Having fun is very important to me. I play hard, … Read more »

Today was a great day! I had so much fun playing with my friends! We wrestled and chased each other until we were so tired we collapsed in the shade. It was a blast! I just love it when I get to spend time with my friends. Sure, we argue on occasion, but that's just part of being in a relationship. Sometimes we disagree. The nice thing is, we … Read more »

You may have noticed that everyone has an opinion.You may also have noticed that others' opinions may not be the same as yours. I overheard Jane talking to a friend who's feelings were hurt by a conflict of opinions. Jane shared something a business associate had told her. Understand that about 10% of the people in your life will love you … Read more »

I blew it. I mean I really blew it. I was trying to show off to the cute new mare in the barn, and I ended up tripping over my own feet and landing with a splat in the mud. I was so embarrassed I thought I'd light up the sky a bright red. Good thing I'm covered in black hair or there'd have been a rosy glow all over the gentle hills of Vermont. I … Read more »

I got to play in the mud today. It's so wet out there I couldn't help it. Chasing rabbits is dirty work! When I came in the house, Jane made me go straight to the bath tub and take a bath. I don't know who got wetter, her or me! I love water, but I don't like baths. It feels a little like I'm trapped in that small bathtub. I much prefer the … Read more »
