    "Merci, tres boucoup"!! I can imagine after such good manners at liberty on the trail, you made sure his mash was extra tasty! Your horsemanship is marvelous and truly admired - I agree that he's thinking what my mares would be also, " Now go away. And bring some treats on your way back". You've got that one pegged! :)

    Thanks, Northenstar! Although he had his moments on the trail - the first time I invited him to cross the creek, he had other plans and cantered a bit homewards, but, bless him, he stopped halfway and waited for me, munching on some moss. And later we shared some great moments, trotting together in the trails, having a bit of a horseplay with swinging his mane, rolling in the snow and jumping around like a foal. As for his mash - I always give special attention to it. He gets sunflower meal with a bit of alfalfa cubes, linseed oil, garlic supplement, turmeric, assorted and hand picked herbs (for immunity) and live yeast, all soaked in warm water. He LOVES this stuff when it's colder outside - gives him those extra proteins. :)

    What a sweet bond you have with him! - as for his mash, what a lucky boy! People think I spoil my horses because I go out every night in winter to bring them alfalfa cubes soaked in hot water with warmed apple chunks.... If they only knew the spoiling going on in Latvia these days! :)

    It is still winter and we are still having fun!

    First, our rears are getting better and better - if you look at our progress in summer and autumn, for example, it is noticeable! Of course, as always, it is a very dangerous thing to teach and nobody should really do it without a good reason and knowledge.





    The benefits of being young and joyful. :)



    Sometimes, we are gracious, sometimes - we are not. The awkward steps into learning sidepassing towards me.







    SOMEBODY ONCE TOLD ME
    THE WORLD IS going to ROLL ME...



    I AIN'T THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHEEEED



    Enough with the fancy moves, LET'S ROLL!

    Listen, darling, how 'bout you give me that whip of yours and I show you how it's done...



    Observe and be amazed how the amazing Snickers teaches you the secret art of Lunging!



    The first rule is to be demanding, yet just, so that the Human remains calm and content! Play lots of the friendly game first!



    Body language is crucial. First, balance the whip, then swing it to get the idea across, lastly - tap the ground to reinforce it.







    If everything fails and the Human refuses to yield to your superior lunging moves, get them to kneel in front of you and warn you won't be giving cuddles next time. It always works!

    I sure do - lots of fun. And lots of challenges. :)

    Although all of the 11 horses who live in our facility are 24/7 in the pastures and can freely roam acres and acres of different terrains, whenever a couple of them are put in the arena, they act just as if they were just let out of stalls. :)

    Here's Snickers, playing with one of his buddies - a 4yo and extremely talented (thanks to his trainer/owner) Russian trotter, Lenys. This little guy is full of spunk and has no problems with moving such big and dominant lads as Snickers around. :)

    Nice!!! I love watching horses at play - in photo #8 it looks like Snickers' forelock is standing straight up in 'fear' as Lenys is 'bearing his teeth' haha Sooo cute as usual :)
