The dentist stopped by today. I hate the dentist. He scares me. But I know once he's floated my teeth and taken off the sharp points on my back molars, I'll be much more comfortable when I chew. It's something all horses have to deal with, so I just "man up" and let him do it. Are there things you have to do that you don't like doing? Visiting … Read more »

My friend Jazz just got a hair cut. He looks like a movie star with his puffy hair and painted toes. He knows that he's handsome, but he doesn't let it go to his head. He displays a strong, quiet dignity, like a fellow who is secure with his place in the world. I really like Jazz. And while I'm a bit jealous of his poofy white hairdo, I also … Read more »

A friend of mine was hit by a car today. She didn't make it. I'm so sad I can hardly stand it. I can't believe she is gone. Vannah was such a fun, lively friend and playmate. Her human friend is devastated and has been crying all day. The people around her have tried to comfort her, but it doesn't seem to be helping. The poor lady's heart hurts too … Read more »

A new fellow moved into the barn this week. His barn name is Joe, though his registered name is a mile long and beyond my ability to pronounce. We've had some interesting conversations. Joe's been around. He's very smart and worldly, and a really nice fellow. Joe and I watched the barn's farrier working on one of the young horses, and started … Read more »

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 »
