Home Sweet Home!
Kathy and I have been at her parent’s place in Kansas the past week. Her mother, Miss Temple had to have an operation to clear up a problem she was having. The operation was a success and she is doing great. Thanks for asking.
We got home last night to the boys, Wally and Kevin. They were really glad to see Kathy, they always are.
I’m getting ready for an outside horse to show up here tomorrow. The horse’s name is Thunder. His owner, Cindi, says that he is a little barn sour and buddy sour. Both of these terms, for those of you that don’t know, means he does not like to leave the barn or his buddies. When you ride away from the barn or his buddies he starts to act nervous and tries to not leave. His owner tells me that when you get a certain distance from the barn he will just shut down. Most of the time, I have found that horses with this issue have problems with respect. By that I mean they don’t respect their owner and would rather be with other horses then be with them, the owner. So that’s what I plan on working with him when he gets here. I will know more for sure when I have that chance. Cindi is planning on leaving him here for 30 days. She also plans on coming over to work with him while he is here. That is great. It don’t happen much that people can, or will, take the time to come and work with me. I should, but I don’t, charge for this service. Still it’s hard to get people to come and spend a little time learning what their horse knows, so that when they go home they will be able to keep up the program. So to say the least I’m very excited the Thunder’s mom is going to come and learn how to be a good leader.
Need to get to it, but first, you guess it, coffee.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
