Miss Temple will be home today, sometime this afternoon. Her doc came in while we were there last night and said he would make it all happen latter this morning. It has been seven weeks sense she went to the hospital and we can't wait to get her home. Everyone is a little nervous. She will need a little more care then in the past and Kathy wants to make sure the boys are up for the job. We think they are but she wants to be here to help the first couple of days. So we are all busy getting everything in order, mostly our stuff out of her bedroom...
I'm looking for folks that would be interested in a one day clinic out on the ranch so if you are interested or you can think of someone who might be have them contact me asap. Also want to do one in Nov. in the valley with Sue so if you are interested or know of someone who might be have them contact me.
I have a horse coming in, starting the fist of Oct. so am getting excited about that. The owner wants to leave him with me for ninety days. That does not happen very often. Most folks think that you can get a young horse where they need to be in thirty days. Truth is, they don't want to swallow the magic pill, time, cause it cost money. I can get a lot done in thirty days but I'm really just getting to know their name in thirty day. And it takes that long for them to get to know me. If you are thinking about having someone start a young horse for you, understand that there is a lot more to it then you might think and it takes TIME! It will be time well spent if your trainer uses the time wisely. I think that most trainers don't always have the best interest of the horse in mind at times. They are running a business and they have to make money if they are going to stay in business, and sometimes they cut corners. But it does not take long, if they are cutting corners, before it will show up in the horses they are training, and it won't be long before people are not coming back to them. I keep saying this but it's true, it takes the magic pill, and if you are not willing to swallow that pill you probably should take up something else, like toy trains or something, cause if you rush the process, your horse is going to know, and your progress will be slower then if you just took the time the first time around.
Ok enough of me.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
