Critter, OMG that story you told is so frightening!!! So glad neither of you were hurt!!
Hunter, although it's hard....it seems you know it is best to find another horse....it wasn't that long ago that I returned Skye to her original owner...it was hard at many different levels...but I had to think of ME first in this circumstance!
Heard from my editor....our proposal for book nUmber 2 is ready for me to put my two sense...although it was my idea to jump into this....I am having SO MUCH FUN this summer spending it with the animals, I'm not eager to sit down in front of my laptop and write stuff....I am not in the school frame of mind...
. That's terrible of me isn't it?
Speaking of....decided most of this summer has been about the horses, so I took Maggie, our dog to our favorite state park today to walk the trails and swim in the lake. She was in her glory!!
. She stood in that lake forever...as if to say "ahhh, coolness!" Hahaha. Here are a few pics! Wish I could horses there...nice trails!!
TJ, I think we could all say the same thing when dealing with horses....you have to take it day by day, and pick out the little itty bitty good things that occur...becauses working around LARGE ALIVE animals....you never know what is coming next!! It's all about learning from each and every experience you have with them!
That being said....tonight I went into Jays stall to put his halter on so I Could treat his feet. He moved to the side of the stall with the most scared look in his eye! Now I've never been rough with him, on the contrary, getting the impression someone was rough on him, I'm slow and kind....just made me look at him differently, and reminded myself to continue to be cautious....you never know what they will do....look at critters situation!!
anyway, he was fine after that , but he could have swung his bumm around or something...like my dad preached to me forever.....you can never fully trust an animal...they are purely that....an animal with instincts!
Positive note....twice today JayJay was the first to come in to be fed!!
