Quote for the week

Don't out smart your common sense

Yep that is something that we all catch ourselves doing at one time or another. We know what to do, but then we start thinking...thinking and making something harder than it needs to be.
When I first got Jack I spent a lot of time studying, watching what he did, and trying to figure out why he did it. Now that wasn't a bad thing, but it did become a problem when I stopped dealing with the behaviors I was seeing and started trying to unravel why they were happening. I really needed to just address the horse that showed up each day and move forward.
We often need to listen to that "gut instinct", our common sense. In our attempt to show how smart we are we often make mountains out of molehills and overlook simple solutions. Common sense is a wonderful thing.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

Dear Jack,
I am not as good at blogging as you are, it is hard some days to know what to say.
We painted my new office yesterday, it is alfalfa and sweet grass green. I can feel like I am at the pasture all of the time.
I am struggling a bit with my change in diet, seems that a sweet tooth has reared its ugly head-oh bother. Did lots of walking yesterday and worked out my ankle.
You are going to hang out by Sir Darby when you come home. He has turned into a royal pain now that he is in love with a mare, it will be your job to get him to think that mares are yucky.
Love the DOR

Listening to your gut is a good thing. Most of the time it is right.I have been having a hard time thinking of things to say,both on my blog and in comments,but then I feel bad when I don't,so I guess my gut is saying try harder.
Hugs and Smooches to Jack.
Love Hugs and Good Thoughts to you ♥♥♥

Common sense is a good thing. You and I have talked about how much I'd like to get inside Poco's head (and I will when $ permits), but in the end, the reason doesn't matter. You still have to fix it.
