I'd like to share an amazing moment with my horsie friends here. You
know how when the horses are frisky and playing in the pasture, and they
get really excited and happy, and they stop, put their noses in the
air, get really big and do a loud exhale? That's not just an Arab thing,
is it? And is there a name for that? To me it means the ultimate "I
feel great." Am I way off?
Anyway, I was riding on Saturday, cantering in an open field, and my
gelding was feeling so good I let him out a little. Nowhere near a dead run,
but when I asked him to stop he did that pose and a loud blow. Woo hoo, I
couldn't stop grinning! What a moment to have my horse with just me,
working hard, and loving it!
