Wow! What a warm welcome! You guys really made me smile.
Donald - You really just got my mind going with that question. At first I thought, "My horses ask me things?" (I don't think they think too much of me...) And then I realized that when I go out to the pasture, I can tell which horse really wants my attention first, and if they want me to itch their head, or rub their ears, or just stand there with them. So I guess in a way I do wait from them to ask me to do what they want. As I said, that's about the limit of what I do with my horses now, and I'm curious what other people would answer. Is there a point where your horses ask you to play with them? (I dream about that!) When you work with them, do they have certain things they'll ask to do?
As long as there's time during the all day worship to go see the horses.
Annette - I'm still thinking about Donald's question, and I was about to say to you, "But my horses never want to play!" And I suddenly realized, maybe that's not true! Maybe I just don't know how to read when they do want to play. Hmmmm. I'll have to ponder on that.
Colette - Glad to know I'm not the only one here at the beginning of the journey. I'd love to read your diary if you ever find the time (darn that time problem!).
Fiona - I'll make sure to check them out! I've always kept a journal of my sessions with my horses. (It's so amazing sometimes to go back and read from a couple years ago, and realize, wow, I actually have learned things!) I don't see why I couldn't post them here.
Jessplum - You've got it backwards for me! Standing back and watching is the easy part! I'm stuck there, actually...I'm terrified
to actually do anything with my horses because I feel like I'm never good enough!
Natalie - You are so right. I am definitely my own worst critic.
I'll work on thinking about the good things, too.
I have a few questions I'd like to ask. I guess my first question is if I should be asking those questions here or over in the Groundwork Questions section of the forum?
