Playing in the arena

Mara and I played with “stuff” in the arena today for part of our daily horse time together. I’m roping the dummy steer, having her drag things, playing with the big rubber ball and engaging her playful side. Tera and Rosie were also enjoying indoor time so Tera was today’s photographer, thank you. Mara B and I did a loop around some fields outside as well, because we love to be “out.”

Rubber boots wet horse great book

The weather kept me from spending much time with Mara B today, we did connect and shared time together while I gave her a mid day snack.  Before and after my Mara time I’ve been reading this wonderful book, one I hope you will read too! Gretchen passed on the review of it to me, now I’ve read it and highly recommend it to you, even if you don’t have much horse time in your day this is an inspiring book for all readers. Thanks Gretchen!

Bonus Sunday Edition


Mara and I had fun meeting Pete’s dummy steer on wheels this Sunday afternoon, his son Ryan pulled this metal steer with an ATV and Mara herded it very enthusiastically! She was awesome with this new challenge. Thanks Pete and Ryan, fun for us today! I generally do take Sundays “off” as a day of rest for all, however this was worth sharing I decided, since we enjoyed a special barn time today. I do have video of Mara B in action too!
