In Beth’s dreams a pony white
Would dance and frolic through the night.
By day into her mind he’d trot
A fancy, floating, fleeting thought.
Sometimes upon his back she’d ride;
Sometimes behind a veil hide
And simply watch him prance and play.
He would be hers, she knew, one day.…

... I tried to share with non-horsey people the elation and overwhelming sense of "being" I felt after an "Aha!" moment with my horse.
Picture this ... it's my once-a-quarter dressage lesson with Canadian Olympian Belinda Trussell at her beautiful Oakcrest Farms. The second of a long series of thunderstorms looms on the horizon as I enter the magnificent arena to start warming up for our 45-minute lesson. As the lesson begins, a rumble of thunder introduces the stormy symphony…

Lest anyone think that Valentine's Day is going to pass us by without a jaunty love missive from one Shakespeare the Equine, let me not disappoint you but offer, herewith, his ode to one fair filly who lives down the aisle ... Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Is it thine amorous eye
That seizes mine awareness,
Or the wistful yearning of thy
Tender whispers in mine attentive ear?
I know not save the craving…

It's a snowy Boxing Day in Aurora, Ontario. Having no respect for time and a head full of cold symptoms, I managed to pull myself out of bed around 10:30 a.m. and have been able to simply enjoy the experience of being -- such a rare occurence lately with all the hustle and bustle of the past few months. My spirits were warmed as I ate my granola and fruit breakfast and read the report in today's Globe and Mail (front page too!) of the successful efforts of a group of people in McBride,…Continue

Is it usual to end an email with Cheerz!? I got emails from Chris Irwin that also ended with Cheerz, but I thought it meant he was drinking (alcohol) and wished I did the same…
Den Bosch is, indeed, a great (little) city!
Yes, it was quite a task, translating Chris Irwin's "Dark Horse."
Who is BTW - who visited the city of 's-Hertogenbosch in Holland?
Yes I know Ennismoor as I had contacted them during my research for buying my dog. Nice photos of Sass and Abbey. Elegent looking girls. I know about the herding instinct of some of the herding dogs as I have an 11 year old sheltie named Otto ( I used to jog with him) who used to herd me and my kids at the cottage when they were all younger. Otto grew out of the herding stuff as I used to correct him. I'm still debating on which colour to choose as Irene, the breeder, is breeding two more litters later this spring which will most likely result in Merles and Mahogony sables. I like them all so I will most likely go for the best tempered puppy. I'm looking forward to it though I hope I'll be all right with such a big dog as I have always had smaller breeds but I love this breed. I knew of Cornerstone from years back when I was considering a collie but was reminded about them again the second time, last year, by seeing a beautiful Collie I saw down at that big Toronto dog fest thing they have downtown every year where the streets are closed off ...I forget the name of the event...anyways this lady had a most beautiful Blue collie named Neut and she told me that Irene Snow was the breeder so I contacted her again, but this time I gave her a deposit. I expect to get 2nd choice after Irene sometime later this summer! I see that you have bred Sass. Do you plan more Dorothy?
Thanks for your response Dorothy.
Talk to you later.
