Midas has this annoying little habit of yanking on the reins when he’s standing. He’s done it as long as I’ve known him, and it’s pretty much never been a priority for me to deal with. First lesson was don’t move your feet without permission. There were days when it was 10-15 minutes before I… Continue reading Chomping

Four years ago, when they were promoting The Dark Knight, I decided that I probably didn’t want to see it because I didn’t want to see the Joker.

I recently found a leafy plant whose care tag said “ambient light” and another that read “minimal light” so I snapped them… Continue reading Brightening
I want to be able to ride Midas, formerly the bully freight train, bridleless and halterless. He already goes quietly in a halter–before I broke my foot I was cantering him in a halter. The time off from the foot was a serious set back for me, and set back our ridden work. So we… Continue reading Operation Bridleless
