Rocky Says: Let it Snow!

Winter is here! I love winter because I can stay outside longer without hunting around for shade or swatting away bugs. My humans come to the barn bundled up in hats and scarves with red cheeks from the cold air—it’s too bad they don’t have nice warm fur like me. My favorite part of winter, […]

5 Gifts to Give Yourself

As the holidays approach, we are bombarded with commitments to giving. We give thoughtful gifts to our friends, we reach out to our family to express our gratitude, and we donate to charity as we can.

Rocky Says: Don’t Miss Out

Money doesn’t mean much to me because I don’t really know what it is. I hear the humans talk about it….a lot! I’ve also heard that the humans need it in order to buy me carrots, though I’m not quite sure why they can’t just dig them up out of the garden. But since my […]

Making the Ask

There are parts of every job and every situation that we just don’t like. This starts early in childhood where we might love going to school, but hate math class. Or we might enjoy playing soccer, but we dread some of the practice exercises. As adults, if we’re lucky enough to love our job, there […]

Rocky Says: Transition Takes Motivation

I heard the humans were talking about transitions this week. Horses do lots of transitions, from standing to walking, or walking to trotting, or trotting to cantering. Sometimes we do transitions slowly, from one gait to another. We take our time getting into the new gait because we aren’t in a hurry. Of course, something […]
