I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
Louie is a new addition out at Templeton Equestrian Center. He is an 8 week old Boston Terrier now owned by my trainer, Michelle Merkin. She got him on Sunday night and brought him to the barn Monday morning and boy did he cry! The interesting point to all this is the reaction of the mares at the barn. They were beside themselves. Maddy just kept looking in the direction of the cries and got all flustered. I didn't get a lot accomplished because she was so worked up. I just thought maybe their maternal instincts kicked in. Either that, or they were just scared at the sound. I don't know which. Has anyone else had a similar experience with "crying babies" and horses?
