Mount Up Like On Wings of Eagles
Yesterday was the most important day that we have ever had in our horse lot. We have a group of guests down from Boys Home in Covington. They spent the day working horses and riding and we will do more of the same today.
They will be starting a program based on what we do, from starting colts right on up to riding. The boys are attentive and deadly serious students. They understand how much fun the horses are and I am working to get them to understand how much the horses can do to improve our lives.
Yesterday was like being in a Walt Disney movie. Rain in the Face has probably only had about 10 hours of handling in his nearly 3 years of living. By mid afternoon, after having worked him all morning, Jimmy and Cody rode him in the round pen. He never bucked. He never bolted. He never spooked. Later in the afternoon the boys and several of my riders went for a long ride in the woods. Rain will soon be one of their horses.
We have four colts and one older broke mare who have decided that they want to go and live in Covington. Boys Home has pasture, a barn, and kids. All they need is horses and heavy training in natural horsemanship. That is where we come in.
This is going to work.
