Good Morning – it is July 21, 2013 — 50 degrees here – Hi Montana – By the way, click photos to enlarge – back arrow to return

Windows cleaning is my chore for the morning — honest — trail ride at 1:00

Sure am having fun trying to train Perla to trust me and do as I say — The problem is she is, as you may know, she is the leader of the herd and she thinks I am part of the herd  — each other horse in the herd does as Perla says — or else — therein lays my problem — how does she get to be leader — I think to a large extent, it is because she is the best one at reading what the rest of the herds is thinking —  she has learned to read their faces — the secret to a good poker player.

Read on down this blog — I will update my friend in Montana on my training efforts. — Oh, by the way, Perla and  I have not been swimming anymore — Some folks will understand why I said that – since I got teased a lot about a “swimming” incident while riding!

Now, for my friends in NewYork City:

Scary night over New York City -- I May not be the best photo artist -- but sure have fun with it each morning!! hope you New Yorkers enjoy it too.

Now,  for my friends on Drummond:

Look at the bow wake on that freighter -- some folks who have out with me on my little 18 foot ski boat know what happens when we cross that freighter bow wake!!! WOW "Everybody still in the boat???"

Look at the bow wake on that freighter this morning — some folks who have been out with me on my pretty powerful 18 foot ski boat know what happens when we speed across a freighter’s bow wake!!! WOW “Everybody still in the boat???”

Now, for my friend in Montana:

Thanks for your blog comment last week. This week I say: “Hey to you.” Sure hope you are enjoying it out west. We (T, A, Me), Nicky, and Perla miss you too but everyone is fine here. Today we trail ride.

Anyway, I  will continue to tell you of my thoughts on Perla, leader of the herd , and of my daily training sessions.  During the session, she reads me before I know I thought anything! — for example,  if I get a little tense because she scares me or because I anticipate  that she will not do what I ask — she reads that tension and says to herself  “Wow, he is tense. There must be something around the corner that is going to eat us.  I ain’t goin there — I best head back to the barn and the rest of the herd for safety” –thus the reason for being “Barn/Herd Sour”.  But I am learning — Perla is a good teacher and trainer and I hope I am a good student!!!

You got caught with a serious look on your face - Wonder if Nicky knows it?

I leave you today with a view through a dirty window so that I may make it a clean window!

Now to all of you, I leave you with a view through a dirty window so that I may have time to make it a clean window!

  1. Your photo art is very scary. We had a scary lightning show the other night in VT. It did cool us off.
