Many thanks to Erin Smith and the students in the vet tech students at Stautzenberger College for administering vaccines, rabies shots, and dewormers to the horses at Woven Dreams Horse Farm, today. It is always an enjoyable experience when we have you out. (On another note, I think it is becoming quite apparent that Tawnie is pregnant. The baby should be due in early to mid May.)

Karyn L Shirley shared Tom & Bill Dorrance, Horsemen's photo to the group: Purple Sage Equine.

I have oft been accused of doing "needless" groundwork, many have said "oh hell, just get on 'em & get to riding". Too many people want to get a horse tired ph...ysically before they will get the horse tuned into them mentally.

A tired horse will eventually recover and not change much. When you change the horse mentally, THAT is when the real changes start to stick with the horse.
