The Boy Whose Horse Was Stolen

Given the kind of situation going on, a divorce, and the willingness of the man to take the boy's horse to hold for some kind of hostage or to punish the mother through the son I'm not maintaining a high degree of hope for the best of outcomes.  Yet still, that is what I want.


Things should be coming to a head about now as I think the divorce hearing is due or done.

Are we there yet?

Winter? Is it over for you yet?

Here in the Pacific Northwest temperate rain forest it's a bright sunny day.

You would even envy me, some of you, given your weather, until I reveal that it snowed yesterday and last night, and froze up solid here.

It's been a straight diet of cold rain here with intermittent snow, and more rain and cold. Mud everywhere unless it freezes into hard ridges, then back to mud.

I confess I'm not exercising my two girls… Continue

Step dad sells Boy's dear companion mare

Well this is some story. Ugly. But the boy and his mom are calling for help.

How are YOU spending your Horse&Pony Winter?

I get to feeling sorry for myself, though with the new little barn, having Altea, and Bonnie now, within sixty feet of the house, compared to having to drive with water and feed a mile and a half, drag everything up an icy snowy hillside for 50 yards, this is heaven by comparison.

You see, it's cold, and it's wet, and it's slushy, and I'm old...there, are you feeling sorry enough for me yet? LOL…

Who loves you, baby?

Kate came in from doing a little mane detangling on Bonnie earlier today.

It's been snowing and getting deeper and when Kate decided to play more with Bonnie after tiring trying to get the tied together "dreds," in Bonnie's mane apart, she took Bonnie for a stroll.  No line or halter, just offered Bonnie a chance to follow, "let's go for a walk, Bonnie," and of course she did.


The paddock is a hazard zone with little pits here and there where big stumps were pulled…

Hello Donald

Thanks for thinking of us here on an icy night. We have had a fine mist coming down that has frozen into an imperceptible and life threatening glaze of ice. Non detectable until you are sliding down the walk. The new puppy fell down three times and with all the exuberance and bounce of youth, thought it a marvelous joke! We survived the cold wind chills and the horses did well with cover from the wind and plenty to eat. Hope you are your kids are doing okay too. Be careful out there!

Hello Donald,
Hope that things have settled down a bit at your place. Cold night here with a terrific northwest wind. I guess it is December and it is to be expected. We had such a beautiful Fall here that I had hoped it would last forever. LOL. The minis are fat and sassy and ready for winter and are turned out with the big horses. They all get along great and my sisters little Major is the boss of their little herd of four. He has a lot of moxie for such a little guy! Hope your holiday was great!

Hello Donald,
Thanks for your nice comment to my little great nephew Dakotah. He is learning about clicker training here at Trinity Ridge Farm He is a very special little boy and shows much promise and talent with the horses. I hleped him create his page when he was here a few weeks ago. Isn't the shot of him and my little mini in the blog I just posted great? A very athletic pair. I couldn't jump like that even when I WAS his age!

I hope you will do the blog you mentioned below. If you post on another website will you still let me know. I have found all your instruction to be very detailed and clear unlike some training books that talk in circles and tell you nothing. Thanks for the good ride from today!

Glad to hear it. Got to keep that nose pointed in the direction of the turn. That's the secret of lightness, meaning both gentle easy but quick response, and real collection. If the nose is turned the shoulder starts coming up. It's when the nose points out, and the body wants to counter bend the should drops and that leg bores into the ground ... ouch.

I'm thinking about blogging a piece on the simplicity (which no one believes is true) of dressage and it's application for all styles of riding. Lyons does a form of it.

Hello Donald,
Just wanted to let you know that I worked on my turn on the forehand with the instruction information you gave. I have to say those are some of the nicest turns I believe my horse and I have done together. Was also able to make much nicer rounder circles without feeling she was falling in on the inside of the circle. Hope you will post more for me to work on!
