Our little darlings, the ranch and yours truly aren't fancy -we are pretty much rough and tumble here. There are no jacuzzis here, sing-a-longs or campfires.
They don't spend any time in their stalls except when eating, aren't tied when being tacked up. They aren't blanketed in the winter, are barefoot.
They pretty much enjoy being "caught" and bribes and treats aren't used at all.
The little darlings are allowed to be REAL horses, not pets.
The Darlings are family - this is their forever home - they are not leased nor bought and sold.
We would be totally lost without them.
They are heroes in their own right.
