Today...after stopping at 2 feed stores over an hour from my the PNW rain...I backtracked to the stables to drop off "Lunch bags...(although given at dinner)! As I arrive, the owner is bringing in the horses...I saw Jesse out in pasture as I drove in and I asked to bring him in and then Shayna Lady when it was her turn. Jesse was being a jerk...walking through his lead, head up high, neck looking like a stallions...a REAL jerk! I made him back up several times and slapped him with his lead rope. He settled down just enough to not get scolded and I took him to his stall where his food was waiting. I sat down on the aisle floor making "lunch bags" for the week and Jesse was calling and calling. It was a chilling sound...echoing through the barn and since I was just beneath him...extremely loud in my ears!!! I... of course thought he just wanted to be with me...and almost took him out to go be in the arena with me to play. Then the stables owner told me it was Shayna Lady's turn to come in. I pulled on the hood to my sweat shirt cause the drizzle was now RAIN to go out to get her. My Shayna Lady...was also being a BRAT...walking ahead of me...turning sideways, she got in trouble too...but not as bad as Jesse! As we near the barn I can hear Jesse...still calling! Shayna Lady saw her stall door...but did not argue when I asked her to walk over to Jesse's stall. There they stood...touching noses, nickering softly through Jesse's stall bars. After a bit...I turned Shayna Lady around and put her in her stall...and did not hear one more peep from Jesse!!!
Now...Jesse has watched over Shayna Lady since she was just a little filly ponying her in the desert as she grew up. I can just see him now...thinking he is her "knight in shinning armor"...her protector...calling for her if she is outta his sight, tied on the other side of the trailer...calling for her if she leaves his side on the trail....calling for her if she is unsaddled and put away first. This will NOT be acceptable behavior...! a few weeks...we are going to my Sissy's for some rides with our equicuz's Dusty and THE KING...who as many of you know...has a HUGE crush on Shayna Lady. So how will this scenario play out??? Will Jesse be happy to see his good friend and (now equicuz )THE KING??? Will THE KING ignore Jesse and only have eyes for Shayna Lady??? Will Jesse try to keep THE KING away from Shayna Lady??? Will THE KING get upset because JESSE is in front of him??? In the past IF Jesse even tried to get in front of THE KING...he would walk sideways to make sure he blocked Jesse from getting in front of him. Will Shayna Lady go into heat when she sees THE KING??? ( she kicked at him once cause he had his know where... and she got tired of it) Will Jesse and THE KING be vying for Shayna Lady's affections???


Shayna Lady...The Princess! The King...LOVER BOY!

And the poor Dustbuster...looking on at this possible 3 ring circus!
Your Desert Rose!


  1. LOL horse soap operas, they are hilarious.

  2. Oh, my!!! Sounds like a soap opera in the making! Horses, what stinkers they can be sometimes, you already read about Gil and his shenanigans....what a brat boy!

  3. The Horses of Our Lives......on at 1pm!


    I hate it, too, when horses call out to each other when you are riding or working with them. It's a sign of disrespect in my book and I don't allow it.
    Apache did it last weekend when we got back to the stables, as if letting all the other horses now she was back. You can wait to call out to your buds until AFTER I am off your back and done getting your tack off.

    Funny. That after I'm off and all her tack is put away, all she wants to do is roll in the dirt, drink a gallon of water, and bury her nose in the hay.
    She could care less about the other horses then. lol!


  4. Oh my goodness, that's a lot of questions! How will you even sleep tonight, thinking of all that?!?! Ahhh, you kill me! Should we be placing bets on the outcome? Lady sure is causing a ruckus up there!

  5. whew!...Well, First, I didn't know Lady's name was actually "SHAYNA Lady?" Hmmm first I ever heard that! But, what a little hussy she is causing all that turmoil! Hee! Hee! It ought to be real interesting up there with your sissy's. Call me if you need an extra rider ok?

  6. Yep, King might have some competition this year! I hope he will be good and not a brat, or his auntie will have another one to straighten up!!! We know he listens to her!!


We wish you Happy Trails
Jesse and his Desert Rose!
