There was no one around to take pictures when I worked with Sage today and maybe that was a good thing. She decided that she was not going to do what I wanted today. I touched her briefly but she said no, not today and bolted away. So when I could touch her and not have her run away, I went to using a rope and tossing it on to her back and over her neck. That did not seem to bother her too much. Tomorrow is another day and she hasn't been here a week so I won't get upset about it. I want to be able to hug her neck. Not too soon though it appears. She did like the stick today but, only if I stayed at the end of it.

I put Lindy out in the round pen today. I wish Katie and Cameron had put their stuff away though. It all didn't seem to bother her but it will Rusty if I get a chance to work with her soon. She has gotten about a week off and that is not a good thing.

Went to Big R today and got Jasper's wormer and 8 way shot and some salt. I have a hard time coming out of there with just what I went after. So much horse stuff and farm stuff and western clothes and boots. I did today though. Went to Dairy Queen and had ice cream and came home. I hope I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow.



  1. You JUST want to hug her neck--funny! That's how I used to feel with Beautiful--like the cartoon character who always wanted to hug Bugs Bunny! She would have none of it.

  2. Ice cream is good.

    I've had to switch gears and only consider the good things and block out anything that's not been accomplished with Red. If you ever want to feel good about Sage, just read our slow, slow, slow progress reports, lol!
