Shane's temperament was a challenge but changed
greatly when he was moved to a facility where he could be turned
out every day, coincidentally only a few doors away from where
the horses live now. He was (and probably remains) the most expressive
horse I have ever known. He spoke with his eyes, body, voice,
whatever it took to get his ideas and feelings across, and look
out if you didn't listen.
My desire to learn how better to interact
and communicate with him sent me to take riding lessons, first
western, then huntseat, and before long dressage.
