For my quarter horse mare ‘I will get into the trailer without rearing and giving a hard time’
For my mini gelding ‘I will see that other people not just my mom are nice’
I CAN trust, I can Trust, I…yes I, can trust my owner/rider. (Said the little Gray MFT trail horse who gets nervous when not in charge.)
The little Welsh gelding: I will NOT poop under the run in shelter when there’s an entire field to fertilize.
The little Welsh Mare: I will perfect the low, soft nicker to encourage more double feedings when mom thinks dad hasn’t fed me and vice versa.
Giggles… thank you for the laugh… Happy New Year.
“I will not rub my head on my humans until I nearly knock them over!”
My old chestnut charger: “I will stop trying to kick, bite or trample the farrier who has been doing my feet for the past seven years and has always been gentle with me.”
The little brave grey mare: “I will try to stop hating all warmbloods and all thoroughbreds.”
The somewhat insane thoroughbred: “I will no longer try to kill my rider when long grass tickles my belly and legs on trail rides.”
The gentle bay gelding: “I will realise that I am a 500kg horse and not a Labrador.”
The big chestnut colt: “I will learn that I am a very well-bred, graceful and beautiful warmblood and attempt to move like one instead of gawking about like a spastic giraffe.”
I will not stomp my poop into dust clumps in the bedding…
I will not poop in the hay…
I will not untie myself when tied 🙂 I will not think tumbleweeds are flying witches coming to cast spells on me.
No more bucking!
1) I will not poop on my neighbor’s driveway when I ride by.
2) I will not throw a fit when my pasture mate gets to go for a ride and I have to stay home.
3) I will not eat my owner’s Mom’s raspberry plants.
4) I will not eat the rest of the garden, plants, trees, etc.
5) I will not bite my pasture mate or kick her in the head.
6) I will not take off with my owner’s friends when they ride me (even though it’s fun to scare them!)
…He could use a couple more… 😉
How ’bout “I will not poop in my water bucket!” 😉 Happy New Year!
