I will not be so pushy, I will be patient and wait for the signal that it is time to move.
will not chase, bully, harass, belittle, any of my pasture mates,
unless of course they won’t play with me, or share their hay.
I will let someone else be the leader, for a day – one day only - that day will be of my choosing with no advanced notice.
I will not chase my pasture mates with a stick.
I promise not to try and kick the dog.
will remain completely trustworthy in your care at all times, even if
the sky is falling, and the earth is coming out from underneath me – I
will trust you.
I will do my best to hold-it-together for you under saddle. I will resist the urge to frolic, buck and bolt, just because I can, and it feels soooooo good!
I will stop trying to take over the number one position, today.
I will try to eat whatever you give me…….even the mash……ugh!
I will try to be more focused on the task at hand, and not let my mind wander to something greener………
If I see you with a halter, I will run up to you and ask “What do you want to do today?”
I will go with you, and not even care that one of my buddies isn’t coming along for the ride.
