Barn Help

By Patty Wilber

You know you’ve got it made when you have 24 hour barn help (even if they are dogs)!

Coulson: hurry up mom! the sun is up, me and lani have been out and back in and you are not on a horse yet! Me, mumbling: Need coffee…

Lani: ok! she is on the move. today we will lay in the arena for every horse. Coulson: great! everything is great!

Coulson: lani? lani! are u sleeping? sandy’s ears r pointing right at me! what should i do? Lani: close your eyes! if u can’t see them, they can’t see u! Coulson: really? that doesn’t quite make sense…

Lani: coulson, it could be a false alarm, but I think she is coming out with another horse. Coulson: what!? i was resting my eyes!

Lani: THIS is how u rest ur eyes!  Cometa (the horse): well if u are going to nap, so am i!  (Mary Ann had other ideas for Cometa!).

Coulson: what do u mean we are in ur way, again, mom?

Couslon: I have been doing this all day. it is hot. i can barely stand up. i would get under the truck if it were not too much trouble! Indy (the horse): well, at least u don’t have to run around the arena and sweat a lot! (but i did do a flying lead change today!)

I get a big kick out of the doggy duo.

Happy Friday!



About BlogPatty

Here's the skinny: I have a thing for horses. They make sense to me. I have a small horse training business (it's a "boutique" training business, not because it's super fancy, but because the horses get a lot of personal attention). I also go by Dr. Wilber, and teach biology full-time at a Central New Mexico Community college.

    If you’re trotting over poles, will they move if you holler at them?

      Usually, but some of the horses then think maybe they should go for the dogs instead of the poles. LOL. Coulson is the worst if I am lunging a horse that is acting silly. He thinks he should intervene. Other than that they usually move or go to the edge!
