The horses stories have been updated. To get more details, go to the horses page and click on their pictures to read more.
In a nut shell though, they are all stepping up to the role of therapy horse. Each one has one student and Rocky is soon getting a second student!
Dawn needs to be exercised before she starts her lesson, but each week she gets better and better. Lisa Foight has been lunging her prior to class and she is beginning to understand that it is time to work.
I wanted to give everyone an update about what life is like since we moved to the ranch. If you haven't read my story about before Patty owned me, go to Meet the Horses and click on my name.. It has not been deleted. My name is Rocky and I'm an almost 26 year old Morgan Horse.
About 9 months ago, Patty started working with me. I mean, she always fed us twice a day and she groomed us and stuff, but she started being around more and more. (I think that's when she left her other job and FINALLY had time for us!)
What a beautiful week. The sun has been shining, it has been warm, the mud has dried up, Life is GOOD!
We had a great lesson with Matt and we are getting ready for Special Olympics. Rocky is definitely challenging him to work, but Matt is USUALLY up for the challenge! Matt thought I was a crazy lady again this week when he got to be a horse. He really got how hard it is for horses when you give unclear directions! It's really fun working together with his OT, his teacher and his speech pathologist to figure out how we can work together to make Matt more successful!
