In spite of the 90 degree weather and numerous health issues with my horses, I still had a very productive summer. I did my usual visits to Heartland Equestrian Center in Frederica, Delaware where I talked about horse behavior and did a show with my horses. Cheyenne, my star mini, has been pulled from performing due to Founder. I am still trying to get this under control but, it has been very difficult. After 2 veterinarians and 3 farriers I am still trying to figure out the best course of treatment for her. I am heartbroken that she may not be with me for our Oct. show, Wild West Round-Up but, feel it best to concentrate on her recovery. This year I added the Kent County S.P.C.A. camps to my schedule, teaching about horse behavior, care and sharing some wonderful stories about my favorite animal. Bonnie Keller at Heartland added two camps for little tykes this summer and I helped her with those. My grandson, Makhi got to tag along and had a great time doing horsey stuff and riding of course. All the pretty little girls were fun too! Wait till he gets a little older, we will have to keep a watchful eye on him. With all of this I still managed to do my 2 hours a week volunteering at the Kent County Library and spent every Wednesday with my 4-H club, County Time 4-H, cooking, sewing, doing crafts and of course caring for the horses. On our last day the girls were treated to a trail ride at Heartland. I now have a two week break and will begin organizing my fall events which include Outlaw Days, Wild West Round-Up and numerous craft shows. New to the schedule are hoop classes, I am working on a schedule with the Harrington Parks and Recreation for days and locations. I am very excited about this new adventure. Since retiring the Small World Dance Team I have found that I truely miss working with the kids. Watch my schedule, it’s on the side bar and check me out on Facebook for future events. Let the beauty of what we love, be what we do. “Rumi”. Did you visit? Leave a comment!!!!

Savannah did her first demo yesterday for the campers at Heartland Equestrian Center in Frederica. The focus on the camp was working with miniature horses. I thought this would be a great time to bring her and talk about the 7 games of natural horsemanship and how to work with foals. Savannah attended the demo with Cheyenne, who played the role of lead dancer and big sister for the day. Many were amazed at just how much Savannah was able to do at only four months old. She performed all 7 games, including the sideways game which she just started doing this week. She impressed them when she went through hoops, jumped poles, did figure 8′s around cones and got on the pedestal. She even wore a pink cowgirl hat. When all was done she took a final bow. After the show everyone got to see her load up on the trailer, she did it like a pro and had no issues riding in the trailer while tied for the very first time. It will probably be awhile before she gets to perform again but, I’m sure she is going to be valuable addition to my Amazing Paints team.
