Proof We Are All Alive and Well.

Romeo and his girl sharing some love time before our lesson. 


Josey has to be the only horse in the world who wishes she could be stalled 24/7. She begs to come in as soon as she is put out. It was warm and sunny today and she wanted none of being outside. 


This is Dickie's "I am concentrating very hard on eating the new blackberry leaves without getting poked" face.

Our newest trick. It is hard to get him on video because he responds better when I am next to him but then he's too close for the camera. 

Visiting with the mares instead of focusing.

  1. I'm pretty sure Grayson and Dickie are brothers from another mother. Grayson also has the "blackberry leaves face" and loves to be distracting by the mares. In addition to all the other things we talk about! ha ha!

    What color is Josey? She looks pretty unique...I love interesting horse colors!

    Oh and I've met one other horse that would rather stay in...he was HUUUUGE QH and he was quite the sissy. ha ha! He couldn't be put out with any other horses because even the sweetest horses would just beat him us. ha ha!

    1. I do think they are long lost brothers!!! Such goof balls. Geldings crack me up. I have always been a mare girl but Dickie has been a blast.

    1. He was in full concetration mowing on blackberries and couldn't decide if he wanted to come harrass me or go back to eating bushes.

  3. Josey has become quite the pampered princess... this is a horse who was outside all the time before I got her... didnt know what grain or treats were... sigh, how quickly they forget their roots! She has become accustomed to the life of a spoiled pony!

    Josey is technically a varnish roan... she has some black spots here and there from her appy breeding, but the socks and wide blaze are all clydesdale. She is incredibly unique... definitely a horse of a different color. It is fun to see what she will be with each season change-lol. I love that girl!

  4. I just have promise the spoiled spotted princess a stall all day to hang out in and no extraneous exercise (you know... anything above a walk!) at her new barn and she will jump right into that trailer!

    Besides, have you seen how the other horses there pick on my little girl....poor princess!

  5. That picture cracks me up of Josey... I keep coming back to it. She truly is happiest in her stall, but would really like the others to all stay in their stall too... she might be sad if they were out and she were in.... but, she sure looks so sad in that picture!

  6. No fair!!!!! How did you teach him to say yes???? I tried and tried and tried and couldn't figure out how to teach it to Chrome. I think I tried every trick in the book. He says no really well though..... wait.... maybe he's trying to tell me something?

    1. He already tosses his head so it was easy. I have just been picking things he already tends to do. The trick is getting him to only do it when I ask. He seems to know when the clicker comes out he needs to wait for my commands or he will do lots of work and get nothing for it.

    2. *pouts* Chrome never tosses his head. Not fair at all LOL!! Dickie is very cute saying yes. :D
