"A horse is like a mirror, and it's reflecting what and who you are."

This is just a little diary of my horse life. I teach natural horsemanship and dressage. I am currently working on getting back to L4 Parelli after a car accident and surgery.

I suffered from a fear of failure, as things had not gone according to planned after my time off from my injuries. It had been an paralyzing disability (fear) but my healing is coming along nicely, and I hope to pass my level 4 before the end of 2011.

I don't know where I am going, but I am NOT lost!

I am now reviewing dvd's and books, and blogging my reviews. The link on the left in the categories (DVD Clinician Reviews)will take you straight to it. You will find links to the websites of all dvd clinicians I review and they are located on the left hand side bottom of page of the page. None of the clinicians or trainers I am reviewing, sponsor, endorse or authorize this site. For more info about them please click on thier link.

I hope you enjoy!

No Sweat....No Poop?

So after being with him all afternoon, I have an interesting observation to share. He didn't sweat or poop during the whole ordeal. I know he was terrified being put in the trailer, and at the very least, "unconfident" in the trailer for a 45min drive. He was dry when he got out of the trailer and there was no poop. Then I thought about it, he didn't poop the whole 2hrs during the loading process. He then did not poop till later in the eve. So no poop from 10a to 6pm. He did not appear stressed at all once home. This morn there is a nice heaping mound for me....BTW he is a tidy pooper, one spot only.... My older TB mare has severe trailer issues and no matter how cold or confident she is, she still has the usual nervous sweat pattern and water poop when trailering. I have been around alot of nervous horses in my day, and most (untill today I thought ALL) horses have the usual sweat pattern when nervous. He had NONE. Not even a little around his ears. Right now he is a perfect right brain horse and has dots equally between intro and extro. Something odd to lick and chew about for sure, though I doubt I will ever have an answer. So I thought I would share.
