Scooby report

The DOR went up on Sunday to visit Scooby. She had a new container of Berry Good Treats to play "hide the treat" with. Hank, Scooby's seeing eye horse, could see the treats so he pulled everything out of the grooming box and then crunched the lid off of the container.
Scooby got all happy because he could smell one of his favorite treats. He knew the games would be on! The DOR dumps a few treats by her feet and then calls Scooby, he finds her in the pasture and then sniffs out the treats (the game was complicated a bit by the broken lid), while he is eating the treats the DOR moves to another spot and places more treats. When Scooby finishes his pile she calls him and he comes to get more. They played for about an hour, moving around the 1 1/2 acres. By the last part of the game Scooby was loping between piles of treats to find the DOR, the DOR was laughing like a kid, and they both were having a wonderful time. The DOR is trying to find ways that Scooby can still feel included and to make him feel likes he still has a job. I think it is amazing that some humans see the value of every horse they meet and love to learn the lessons that we have to teach them.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

Have not been following long enough to know, but is Scooby blind? I once rode a blind pony in gymkhana; you would NEVER have known she was blind! Horses are amazing!

Mama H,
Scooby is blind. I rode him that way for a while, but he started getting frightened by noises and having panic attacks. We are safer together with me on the ground
