It is really fun to look back and see your horse's ancestors.

The love of my baby sister's life was a little 1/2 Arab mare, Neysara ("Jessa"). I think my sister was twelve when she got her. She spent days researching the Arabian side of Jessa's pedigree, and wrote it out in microscopic script, made a little velvet bag, and hung it around the mare's neck, Bedouin style.

When the Jessa was 34 and on her last legs, I bought a hand-made sterling silver necklace with a white stone in it which was the same size and shape as the mare's tiny star. My sister hung that around the mares neck for the final 2 weeks of Jessa's life, just as she had done with her pedigree twenty years before. So even though we never actually did anything with her pedigree (other than bred her once to the Arabian stallion, Trinask), it was really fun to have that knowledge: it added a lot to the fun of owning her.

It is so interesting, so much history involved. And when you look at the pictured you easily see which traits come from what side of the pedigree.

It is our bonding time and they love it as much as I do. Problem is, there is a little jealousy from time to time so I'll get "hollered" at for spending too much time with any one horse!

I am so with you Arab Mama..

I had the best time 2 nights ago, in the cool darkness, with my Solei, Chevelle, and Rowan, all snorfling my neck, just standing together doing absolutely nothing but enjoying each others' company. The universe can't beat that.

Imagine, keep spending time with them, they'll remember, and time on the ground establishes trust and partnership, even if you think you're doing "nothing."

I have a riding student that is learning the valuable lesson that every interaction she has with her horse is training. She has a strong willed Haflinger and she thinks it is so amazing that it is easier to get him to listen to her when she rides if she starts out with a few minutes of groundwork first.

Horses are intelligent creatures.
