The Herd


This is Spot. She was my second horse and she was wonderful: fun, sassy until the day she died, confident and totally safe. I never had to worry about trying anything new with Spot– she took it all in stride like it was no big deal. I still miss her.

This is Clue. He was my third horse and you probably can't tell from this picture, but he was all business. He took his job very seriously, whether that meant being herd leader or eating dinner or galloping around the pasture or teaching kids to ride. We all miss him and his nicker.


This is Sadie. She’s usually really sweet, unless you brush her too hard (she's ticklish). She’ll share her food with anyone (except dogs) and she’s friends with everyone (except chickens). She really wants to do the right thing and she tries very hard. Now that Clue isn't here to be the boss, she's experimenting with herd leadership, but she'd be happy to give up the job if someone else really wanted it.


And here's Lindy. She loves attention and is the first one to the gate. She's sweet like Sadie, but she's a bit more clever. So far, she uses her smarts for good things (aside from trying to untie herself). Let's hope it stays that way.

Super cute pictures of the herd! And what a lovely horse Spot was! I’m enjoying looking around your website and reading your older blog entries! You’re hilarious! We both went to college for the same thing — no wonder we’re so much alike! I LOVED creative writing too…we’ll have to blab about all that one day! :)
