Hi PB. I check in here for the great stories of horses & their owners. I live pretty isolated now & get most of my human contact online. Most of the folks out here like their privacy & many are not friendly unless they make the first move. I just got a new job-fnished my intial training & will do my night shift alone Sunday morning. Then the next two weeks will be an afternoon shift-I think that will be much better. And only 6 hour shifts-which will be easier on me, as that's what I have done previoiusly.

I don't know if I told this story yet or not, but it turns out she loves turtles. As seen in some of my photos my pond runs right by the pasture. Apparently one of the snapping turtles, about 10" across the shell, was making his way to/from our pond via the pasture. She saw it and decided to check it out. I saw her nudging something out there and wasn't sure what it was so I went to see to make sure it wasn't a snake. After seeing the turtle I stayed back to watch what she would do. She would gently nudge it with a hoof and then smell it again until it tuck it's head in.

After a few minutes the other horses started coming over to check it out and this is where she shows her feelings for turtles. She refused to let any of them get anywhere near the turtle as in biting, kicking and swinging her head at them to keep them away. Once the turtle finally got to the fence and out of her/their reach the other horses walked away. She stood there at the fence watching it go in the pond and looked all over trying to see it. Took all of a half hour before she left that fence waiting on it to come back. Every so often I'll see her standing at the fence looking over in the pond as if she's hoping it will come back out to play with her.
that's adorable! Wish you had a video, would have loved to have seen that!

Just caught up....yikes, you,don't get on for one night and the reading list is LONG!! 😳😄

All the 'beautiful' talk got me thinking....if you had to "define" you horse(s)in one or two words...what would it be? Anyone in?

I'll start with my Skye...she is definitely a PRIMA DONA. She hates the cold, the mud, wind, snow, rain......yet she tortures herself and stands right under the gutter....ugh! Not real smart! She would much rather spend her days indoors and be pampered. She loves to be brushed. She'll stand there forever with her eyes closed as you brush away.

Now, Rainn, I would call her a CHOW HOUND! She LOVES to eat!!!!😍😍😍😍 she digs through her hay for the best pieces, tosses it in the air, and buries her head in it. When she comes up for breath....her whole head is covered in hay springs.😂😛😳. Too funny!

Ok your turn....define your horses!

My Dallas (7 year old AQHA gelding, home raised) is a GOOBER...by that I mean he is silly and funny yet smart and curious. Not afraid of anything, wants to be in my pocket. Kind of like Hunter on his good days, LOL. His other pet name is BOO BOO.. Just ask Roadyy, he'll know what I mean. Dallas has had the most injuries, I think, of any of mine because he just seems to get into messes, like Dennis the Menace. But, I love him and he is going to be a super grandkid horse someday.

My Windy, 15 year old TWH mare, is a SOLID ROCK. She's built like a tank with solid bone, is a gaiting phenom when she gets going, and is super dependable and takes good care of me. She will try to do anything I ask her. I have put her in clinics thinking I was teaching her something; I've realized in the wisdom of my advanced years just recently that I was the one who needed to learn. It's made me a better horsewoman which has made her an even better partner for what we do.
