Being a dog is great. I'm three years old now, and I'm a very happy dog. People say that Moshi is the wise one, but I've learned a whole lot in my short three years. And that includes the secrets to being happy. Would you like to know what those secrets are? Here you...

Happiness. What is that, exactly? Is it winning a blue ribbon? Is it winning the lottery? Is it falling in love? Or does it take some kind of magic formula to achieve? Would you believe me if I told you that happiness is a habit? So is unhappiness. Of course, there...

I'm definitely a creature of habit. I get up at the same time every morning, eat the same breakfast, go outside and check out my usual places, and follow Rhett back in the house to sit at his feet while he reads the paper. From there, our day might be different, but...

My friend Maggie sent me a note this week. She said she appreciates my weekly motivations, but could I please address the issue of "momentum" as it relates to riding. Every time Maggie and her rider have a lapse in their riding schedule, they find it hard to get back...

I'm so happy to be back in Vermont! It's cool here with lots and lots of BUNNIES! I miss my swimming pool in Florida, but I've got wonderful ponds and streams all around where I can swim and play. Sometimes, Rhett lets me go with him when he visits other farms so I...

I'm a great navigator. Rhett doesn't always hear my directions, but I do know where I'm going. I've done the trip from Florida to Vermont enough times now that I know the way just by the smells. Each town and each highway have their own unique aromas that waft through...

I don't remember my Mom. Do you? Some of you talk to your mom all the time and others never do. Few of us horses still have contact with our mothers. In the wild it's usually just the fillies who stay in the same herd with their moms. The boys usually move out to a...

When I was a pup, I told my Mom that I wanted to be a horse. They look like they're having so much fun in that big arena in front of all those people! I like how the crowd claps when the horse and rider are finished with their test. I want people to clap for me! My...

One of the nice things about living in a house (as opposed to Moshi's barn) is that I get to watch TV with Rhett. I usually don't pay much attention to the TV unless there are dogs barking or cats meowing. Then I get excited and try to find them. That makes Rhett...
