Jordan’s Blog: April 1st, 2013
My sister Olivia is really bonded with Grizzley Girl. We call Griz, our little sister and take her to the dog park and the horse barn with us.
She plays there and learns what it is like to be a real dog. That’s what my mom says anyways… I think she means learning to behave and respect other animals and not always be on a leash.
She has to behave because she could get kicked by a horse or something if she gets too close. I rode a couple of times last week and Olivia brought out Grace’s (my horse) mom who is not trained really well because she’s a brood mare. That means she only has babies and doesn’t get worked.
So we put Griz on a leash for a while so my mom could focus on Olivia and that would keep Griz safe. Only, when my mom got in the ring with Olivia and Emma, Grace’s mom, Emma was acting up. My mom said I should hold Emma and walk her because mom wasn’t sure what to do.
I showed Emma who was in charge by staying calm but correcting her when she wasn’t listening. You have to do that with horse, just like with dogs, because they don’t understand what we want them to do. We had fun and at the end, we were all tired out and Griz rode back home asleep on my lap. Here’s a couple of pictures of Griz and me with my horse.
