Walking to the barn this morning for breakfast, I see Rhett in, what appears to be, Sage's stall. And the door was shut !!
I asked him why he was in Sage's stall and this is where the dialogue began...
Rhett: Oh, thank god you are here. That 'red horse' locked me in.
Me: Rhett, that 'red horse' is nowhere near the stall.
Rhett: Well, of course she's not now. She taunted me to come see what she had left in the stall and then she slammed the door.
Me: Rhett, Sage didn't slam the door. The wind slammed the door.
Rhett: Well then, she told the wind what to do 'cause she waited until I was in here and then told the wind to slam the door.
Me: Rhett, Sage did not tell the wind to slam the door. How long have you been in there anyway ??
Rhett: It seems like all night. I'm sure it was all night. The sky fell and changed from black to light!
Me: Rhett, that could literally have been in the last hour. Let me just see how much poop is in the stall and we'll know how long you've been in there.
Rhett: I am sure I pooped before I came in here many hours ago. It was many moons ago, so you won't find any.
Me: Rhett, many moons would be more than a month, so stop exaggerating. I won't find any poop because you've probably been standing in the stall for just a few minutes and then the wind blew the door shut. And now you are trying to blame Sage! Did you even push on the door to see if it would open??
Rhett: The 'red one' locked me in, I heard her lock the door. Then the B/W one came over and made sure it was locked. You know, the one you use 2 locks on the stall door to keep her in !
Me: Really Rhett???? Now you're blaming Sarah? I'd lock you in too with all the blah, blah, blah...nag, nag, nag you do with her every morning. I'm sure in your mind Koda must have had something to do with this too?
Rhett: Pipsqueak?? Naw, he just stands around waiting for someone to tell him what to do!
Me: Rhett, the door was never locked and now it's open. I thought you wanted to get out of the stall?
Rhett: "Ummmmppphhhh......frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. Let's eat!"
Me, shaking my head: LOL, Rhett, you crack me up.
For me, it's impossible to offer my horses anything but autonomy, choice and voice. If I create good questions, and accept their mind and body answers and their responses, our relationship strengthens as our partnership grows.
I can help you create the relationship of your dreams.
