Pippin's POV: Practice Makes Perfect

I just don't understand why my Mrs.Owner isn't as excited as I am about my new trick. Well, it isn't a new trick, but I've been perfecting it and what they say is true! Practice makes perfect! I'm down to under 10 seconds. I believe that's a tough time to beat! 




I am a very talented horse, if I do say so myself. Hay, I wonder if I could get on Letterman's show when he does Stupid Pet Tricks? But wait a minute, why isn't it called Letterman's Really Smart Pet Tricks? I'd get a trip to New York City - wouldn't that be cool? I'd be famous! I wonder if I'd get priority boarding and a First Class seat with free carrots?


Well, my Mrs. Owner doesn't like my trick. In fact, she foils my attempts by braiding my mane around my halter. Geesh, not only does it stop me slow me down, but I look like a stoopid mare! Real geldings don't wear braids! Oh, well, maybe those sissified show horses... but not us handsome drafty guys!

  1. Pippin, you are so smart and talented, but please don't ever teach Shy that trick!

    And you are a very handsome drafty guy, even with a braid :)

  4. Every time I have hauled Paj, we get to our destination, I open the side door, and he's standing on his halter. That's the only time he takes his off. I keep a spare in the trailer at all times.

  7. Dear Cyndi,
    Please tell Pippin that I admire his gumption and his intelligence. I bet that not every horse can do that. I haven't lived with horses since I was small, and so I don't remember much but I do know that the two horses with whom my family lived were retired from their work life and they never let us put halter and rein on them again!

    Peace.

  15. Wow, he made fast work of that halter. The braid is a great idea, you might need it along with a rope halter. Altho that might make a snarled mess?

  16. LOL you've always got to watch them!

  17. Lol! Naughty boy! There's nothing worse than tying up a horse, walking away to get something (for just a minute) and returning to find a halter hanging from the post or tree. Better find a solution BEFORE the next long trailride. haha =)
