I had always dreamed of having a horse…
Just before I turned 40 my dream finally came true. Lacey, my paint, has taught me so, so much. We have developed an amazing bond of trust over the years.
Alexandra has been training Sammy – the palomino– since he was 3 months old. Sammy is a love. Can you guess what his favorite treat is ? I will give you a clue, it is a treat that monkeys also love. The other horses prefer carrots and apples– feel free to bring some treats to share with them if you would like.
Angel, the pony – is not always such an Angel, but l to be groomed by little hands.
Jack – my husband’s horse, was recused from a farm in Vermont. Jack was originally used as a cattle horse- he likes to go and go.
The herd dynamics : Lacey is the head mare- the rest of the horses follow her lead. Sammy adopted Lacey as his mom, but she lets him get away with whatever he wants. Jack loves Lacey as his mate, but cannot get very close to her because Sammy is a needy youngster. Angel loves Jack, and always wants to be with him. Sammy loves to tease and chase Angel.
