one big harness

Worked with Patty and Steel today (and Jasper, but that is another story), went for an amazing drive on her 42 acres. Through a field, near the lake, along a gurgling creek...beautiful time. This is me proud as a lioness for getting off the harness (hames to spider) in one motion! Not easy when you're 5'3" and built like a hobbit.

Also, Patty makes the best rabbit ginger soup in the world.

I am hardy folk!

I love driving horses. I can't wait to get Jasper to a point where he is calmer, and a little more like steel.

seeing merlin on Sunday!

Have you ever heard of Natural Horsemanship? It's a method of training. A friend's trainer teaches it and I spent a day last month watching him do a clinic. It's really fascinating watching the horses begin to develop "thought" rather than just "response". Really seems to calm them down.

Jenna, if you have a personal ad anywhere, please make this your profile picture. It is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e. And maybe frame one specially for your mom. Your smile is contagious and cannot be misunderstood. Anyone who knows you and loves you will see *you* in this picture and smile every time they look at it.

I can identify with you on the big horse/small person routine as I used to work with 17hh hunters! I'm sure I grew some when I was there!

That big ear-to-ear grin says it all : )

Seeing that photo just reminds me of the relief in going from 17+ hands and full leather harness to 15 hands and nylon. Pulling it off was not so bad but heaving it up there? Not so much! Phew! ( cleaning it was an all-day, very messy affair.)

Ahh, I love horses, too. I've had horses most of my life, but not in recent years.

Belgians are very popular here in PEI. I just saw one for sale, trained for draft, 17.3 hands! Can you imagine?

I will keep dreaming ...

Haha I agree know that proud feeling you get pulling the harness off a large horse in one smooth motion, but all my experience comes from harness-race horses. :)

Love the pic..... you're just radiant in it!

I second the request for the ginger rabbit recipe. Sounds like I need to grow some ginger in my garden to use for ............ the rabbits that raid it. (evil grin)
