Happy Birthday Dusty !

Dusty's 14th Birthday
Today is Dusty's birthday, so a very Happy Birthday Dusty!  Of course, there will be lots of treats for her today. There will be no work because, after all, who wants to work on their birthday?  And the weather is miserable.  This heat wave has got to blow out of here soon. No one should have to wear a saddle when it's over 90 and humid.  

In the past year, Dusty and I have come a long way from where we started. She and I have used many different training techniques/activities to get where we are now. At times it is slow going and repetitive, but patience is the key to a well trained,willing horse. We are working on forming a solid partnership and I hope that some day she will form a connection with me. So far that has not happened on her end, unless you count how cute she can be when waiting at the tack room door after her lesson for a Stud Muffin treat. She's a very independent mare and earning her trust may or may not happen any time soon.I believe that she does like the attention she's receiving from me. Then again, due to her celebrity status around here, would anything less be fair to her delicate sensibilities?

In conclusion, Id like to congratulate her on being such a smart girl and having a more than adequate work ethic. I was joking the other day with my daughter during our lesson, and said, " If by some chance we ever do go to a show, I think her show name should be "Curb Your Enthusiasm"!

Until next time
