Horses In Heaven
It was the saddest thing I’ve ever done
We’d rode a lot of hard miles together
He was a big hearted son of a gun
And in the wake of his final few moments
His eyes seemed to say we’ll meet again
And then and there I was faced with a question
That I’d been ponderin’ since I don’t know when
Will there be horses in heaven
A place where all good horses go
Will the studs and the mares
Be running in pairs up there
When He gathers His fold
Dear Lord, I’m sure needin’ to know
In my sorrow I turned to the bible
Like my mom and dad taught me to do
And I read in the great Revelations
‘Bout the One they call Faithful and True
It is written that He and His armies
On white horses will come back at last
And my heart sang for joy with the answer
To a question all cowboys have asked

This is a photo of the Mustang Dad will competing with in Murfreesboro, TN in October. Isn't he beautiful... I know I keep saying it, but I don't know what it is about the Mustangs that just make you fall in love with them at first sight.... I am smitten again... Of course, Tres is still my number one fella...

The Day 10 lesson was almost 2 hrs. long. The video is excerpts from the first day under saddle. Notice, Tres makes exactly 5.5 really good rounds before the tantrum begins... BTW, Dad looks pretty darn good too doesn't he, especially considering he will be 72 on Sept 21... Love you, Dad!

Day 5, May 12, 2010.... Dad and Tres are working together.... Dad had his radio on, as usual, when he is video recording. Of course he can't hear it in the round pen. Looks like the workout was choreographed to the song "Friends"... Amazing what you notice when you are reviewing the videos.

I made a little video of Tres' first little tantrum..... Dad and I were wondering if we were gonna spend the night at the round pen.... This was on Day 3... So many firsts. First out of the stall, in the round pen, use of a haltar, and NOT IN CONTROL.... He was not a happy camper....

They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there.
"Welcome to Heaven" he said.
"What kind of Heaven won't allow animals?
"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you,
So the old man and horse rode on.
"S'cuse me Sir, my horse and I are getting mighty tired,
mind if we come in and rest in the shade for awhile?"
"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there, along with
a bucket to water your horse. Make yourselves comfortable."
"You're sure my horse can come in?
"Would you come in if you had to leave the horse?"
"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven; he said the horse couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some
shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy
here can't come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
"You mean this is Heaven? Horses ARE allowed?
"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life-long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late.
