Now how to train a horse to do tricks such as kiss is quite simple. Just let him smell a treat and draw it away from him and towards you. When he tries to reach for it with his mouth give him the cue and kiss him, then feed him the treat. Again, do it repeatedly until he gets used to it. Remember to kiss him with love.
Lives that changed instantly. Instead of being able to sleep in until 7am, we woke at 5 to be the out at the barn at 6 so that we could take care of Lenny before work. In 60 minutes we would clean the stall, exercise and groom the horse on days that my husband had to work. On his days off we would sleep in till 6, to excited to stay home. I got the chore of getting the horse out of the stall and working with him, the stall cleaning and grooming went to my other half. I didn’t ride, but I did lose a lot of weight, all that walking!
Then came the “it’s Him” moment. We had made it to the top of a hill where there was a cell phone tower and building surrounded by chain link fencing. On the outside of this facility, there was a cement water trough with fresh water. Our trainer and the other rider had gotten their first and their horses were quietly drinking. Romeo came up from the side and put his whole face into the water then started splashing the other horses! Both of them jumped back as if to say “Hey, he’s splashing me!” Romeo continued to splash and play in the water, I’m not sure that he drank any.
Percy Warner Park is part of an area known collectively as “The Warner Parks,” named for brothers Percy and Edwin Warner, who worked diligently to preserve this land. Together, the parks span some 2,684 acres, making them the largest municipally administered parks in Tennessee. Edwin Warner Park backs up to the much larger PWP, but Edwin Warner Park is deserving of its own write-up, so we’ll stick to brother Percy’s park here.
Willie mentioned at the end of the show how important it is to the Robertson men to make their wives happy. That is quite the statement coming from a bunch of bearded duck hunters. However, maybe that is the secret to a happy marriage. Let’s take a look at how they actually did that throughout this episode.
Young children can easily play the game by matching the calling card to the identical (albeit somewhat smaller) picture on their board, or when playing the caller, holding up the card for players to see. For a beginning reader, this is the perfect game because it doesn’t feel like learning to read. It’s an easy leap from matching pictures, looking at the words, hearing others say the name, to being able to read the label with the picture. Bonus!

2) The method must be safe for the horse. The horse is your responsibility. You, as his owner, are his only advocate, as he has no voice for himself. No matter how fractious the horse’s behavior, it does not deserve to be abused. If the method gets the horse hurt and he needs the veterinarian, you not only have a physical issue to overcome, but an emotional scarring as well. Do not give in to peer pressure or advice from someone, no matter how “well known” they are, if your gut is screaming otherwise. Your horse will thank you!
