Shoe update: not only did I get my lost shoe put back on, all my shoes were reset. Now I have no valid reason not to put my spotted rear back to work.
Here is a photo the the DOR enjoying one of her favorite things to do, gentling a horse. She loves the time, peace, and centeredness of working in harmony with a horse. The gentling process always teaches her something important about herself. It is like spending hours on self reflection as she and the horse mirror each other.
I think she would love to have a job where all she did was gentle horses. I do know she would miss the students that she works with. Especially the ones at the alty, she says in many ways they are a reflection of what she does with us.
I wonder if I start acting like a wild/ungentled horse the DOR will spend hours trying to gentle me and not making me work....
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
