horse training

Okay totally unrelated but 7 (at least) helicopters just flew low overhead heading southeast. Several police, others were...? News? Life flight?? What the heck is going on?!

Anyway, I was going to talk about horses. Standing tied is good for them, they need to get used to doing that, so periodically I have them spend several hours tied. Mind you, this is not a herd that gets along well or ever has physical contact (other than teeth and hooves) so this is good for them, they're very polite when tied. And one of them (not to name names, but the one who is a different color than the other two, ahem) has the attention span of a gnat on crack and isn't good at holding still....

Says Shylah and Dusty, "Can you put Gwen farther away from us? Like, maybe Nevada?"
