    Meet Wyatt, my Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He has had his picture taken with Santa every year of his life. This is his 8th time! Since my hubby and I don't have children, we tend to treat our dog and horses like our children and spoil them just a little!


    He's cute. I see more horse people with them now, too.

    If I do not feed our horses before I clean they follow me around and make incredible pests of themselves. Lately, Trampus has been following me and putting his nose on my back. I don't know if he loves me or is trying to warm up his nose. Judging by some of the things he has done it is probably the latter. Bart is very interested in the wheel barrow. One morning he licked every inche of it. I fear his tongue may be come affixed on some cold morning. Yesterday he was nosing around in the wheel barrow the entire time I was cleaning. I carry both a square tipped shovel and a manure fork because of the ice. The shovel was in the wheel barrow as I was about to finish. Bart suddenly grabbed the handle in his mouth and threw the shovel about four feet in the air. When it clanged to the ground he just stood there staring at it. You gotta love em.

    No ride yesterday I was a little late and the ladies could not wait. The weather today is turning to rubbish so its home I stay. Never mind kate bucked Roslyn off yesterday and now she is the walking wounded. Roslyn is getting a little tired of kates yipee moments which is a shame as kate is a very responsive horse. She never stops talking, or welcoming one when we go into her paddock or she spots us. One very vocal horse.

    I have been reading up lately on how the little things we do wrong with the our horses can lead to wrecks. Its amazing how we get a little lax and let the horse get away with something, but it comes back to bite us on the rear later.

    Take Stella and her loading problems. I suffered a heart attack 23 Dec 2011 and after that was very carefull not to allow myself to get stressed.

    One of the things I did was when Stella bulked at getting on the trailer, and because I did not want the stress, allowed her to get away with it. Finally it came home to roost and she refused to load hence the new training. Makes one ponder on all of the little things we allow the horse to get away with that will eventually effect the ride and maybe our safety.

    I, inadvertantly, in my attempt to not allow stress effect me, taught Stella to was O/K to refuse and that now and again she would win, which, resulted with a full blown refusual.

    Well I have survived the 21 December end of life as we know it, and a year with no further adverse medical issues, intend to celerbrate my survival with a get together of friends, some country music, horses like country music. I often sing to my horse Stella, I have a great voice, its the rough passage out that spoils it, really spoils it. A few drinks, fine food and the new years resolution will be. Don't let the mares in my life get away with anything. For its the small things that cause us the problems.

    Now all, keep this thread going it really is worth it and it would be a shame if it drifted off into cyber space. By the way singing to the horse an't as stupid as it seems, its hard to have a angry attitude and look, when singing.

    Cheers all.

    Rofl I sing silly stupid little songs to mine all the time. I don't know if they like it but they don't try to run away anyhow when I'm singing.
    Stall cleaning song:
    Nadie (or whichever horse is having it's stall cleaned) goes poop poop poop and I go look look look then I put it in a bucket and I take it all out. I put it in a bucket and I take it all out and that's what it's all about.
    <laughing> how is that for silly?
    Bet everyone can guess the tune used for this "song".
