    The little things that make you happy

    As I was getting ready for work yesterday, my BO called to let me know that she check on my new baby donkey that I brought home the day beofre. She let me know how much water was gone from the bucket & how many piles of poo there was & what they looked like.
    My husband thought I was out of my mind! He couldn't beleive that she called me with a "poo report", but it made me happy

    Non-horse owners/lovers never understand!

    I've been trying to encourage my old boy to use his back when we ride, and I'd been given the advice that when he is using it, it will feel like he is pooing. I was so excited when he stopped whilst we were riding one day and it wasn't until I turned to look that I knew that he was pooing, which means that he was probably using his back! I was so happy, and couldn't really brag to anyone...

    Poo reports are very important. No poo means get the vet out, running poo means check temp often and keep an eye out, but that is something only horse people understand.

    Glad your donkey is adjusting well, but where are the pictures!!!???

    OMG totally had that moment yesterday when I was riding, my boy usually never engages his back, but halfway into our riding session I kept feeling his back under me and I kept looking behind me to see if he was trying to poop... but it was actually him using his back! I was so happy! And I couldn't tell anyone but my trainer lol..

    Little things that make me happy is when I got to grab my boy from the paddock he will sometimes prance up towards me all happy, and this maybe happens a couple times a week so I just love when he suprises me! Also yesterday while riding, he often times has an itch on his leg and I give him his head, well... I thought he was about to itch his leg.. then his head came back his mouth full of hay! That was sticking out under the fence I was riding in.. all the girls I was riding with busted out laughing.

    The little things I love is how my boy acts and how he makes me laugh with silly things, and the fact he loves to make me happy... My trainer tells me that we are perfect for each other and it's true! He makes me soooo so happy.

    It makes me happy when mine poop outside instead of in the barn.

    It makes me happy when I have completed a ride without falling off.

    It makes me happy when I can sneak to the barn and clean out their water tanks without them trying to help (doesn't happen very often).

    In general they make my life happy.

    Little things.. Zoe is a little thing! She's learned how to make "popping" sounds with her mouth, which she does on a regular basis now. Super cute for the first 5 seconds, then utterly annoying.

    What makes me happy is when I get kisses and lovies from "my" horse friends.
