Hi all! Looks to be another busy day on this thread!
Nvr2many, WOW! What beautiful pictures!!!! They brought tears to my eyes. Looks like you had a wonderful adventure!😃
Hunter, this must be the weekend for clinics! This is the weekend for mine as well. It's on natural horsemanship. ( ya know, the clinic where once the lady heard I was taking it, pulled the horse deal out from under me....). Meanwhile, my rainn's previous owner offered me use of one of her horses to use in the clinic!!! She's a bit green, so we should BOTH learn a thing or two!!! ( that's why im not taking rainn, she's a bit too trained). I am a bit nervous tho, as I don't know this horse real well....but thank goodness I have the option to do total ground work if I want!!! We will play the whole weekend by ear!! 😋
Speaking of Rainn, we rode again tonight. Not too far, as I took my dog, and she was bothered by the heat again. I just have to say, Rainn is something else. We had a semi, two Amish buggies, and some speed demons pass us on the rode.....she didn't flinch! AMAZING!!! 😃 I don't think we'll ever find another like her!
Does this sound weird??? I was thinking the next time I go to look at a horse, I would take my dog (assuming where we go,doesn't have any running around)......and here is why I am considering it......let me back track 20 years first.....one guy I dated and was engaged to, my one horse HATED!!!! I soon found out that he was a real control freak jerk....I think my horse knew that, they have a sense.......and hence why she would throw him etc.....souls have gotten rid of the guy sooner!!!! Lol
Fast forward to now.....my dog is a town dog and up until these two horses, she had never been around them. When Maggie is around Rainn, she is very comfortable, almost too much so where she walks right under without a care....now with my PRIMA Dona, that's another story! Maggie's ears pin to her head, she whines, shows a lot of fear, and is very worried when I work with her....I think Maggie knows this horse is a bit off....dogs have that sense too.....
So....I'm thinking if I could get a read from the dog when around a potential horse, that may help in the choosing....not totally of course, but something to consider????? Am I totally off my rocker???? 😱😲😜
Anyway.....welcome TJ! Where's Sereno?
Have a good night everyone! Happy trails! 🐴
