I really enjoy the Arabians as well as the half Arabian here. Rosie is a different story. No offense to her but she’s just a horse, a really sweet one, but still a horse. Pam and I got home this evening and it had been raining for just a few minutes. The herd was hanging around outside the corrals and I immediately started to unload ten bales of hay into the storage shed before it could get too wet. Finished I glanced at the crew and they were all under shelters. Sovayn, Aspen, and Trooper were in their corrals. Shar was in Rosie’s, Mattie was in Shar’s and Rosie was in Mattie’s. I place dinner on the cart and head toward the poor starving horses, just ask ‘em. Shar and Mattie go to their corrals on their own, while Rosie stands in the rain in Mattie’s corral, “Go home Rosie.”
“Woe is me, It’s wet out here and I’m so hungry”
“Come on sweetheart, go home”.
“Nobody loves me, I’m so hungry”.
I close the other corral gates and I’m getting wetter by the minute. After much coaxing she finally heads home, turns into her corral, and seems genuinely surprised that her dinner is waiting for her in her nice dry shelter. The other neglected horses are nice and dry, about halfway through their hay, talking to me, and giving me the stink eye because their grain is a couple of minutes late. They don’t seem to care that their wet bedraggled owner can finally go inside to have his dinner.

Ohhh, too funny Mike.  I have one who "tells" the others when they can go in the barn.  I can be shaking a grain can to get them to come in and more times than I care to count, he will stand in front of the crew and the others know not to dare challenge his position.  It's like a test of wills!

I've learned that no amount of money can substitute for class.
