My Favorite Things

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 9:08 AM | Anonymous

This morning as I was giving the horses hay and cleaning up from a night of processing all that hay, I began thinking about my favorite things.  I thought I might share them with you, with the hopes that you will add to my list by sharing YOUR favorite things as well.

Linda Pucci's Favorite Things:

  • The sound of horses eating grain
  • The smell of fresh hay
  • Being able to see my horses' breath in the cold morning air
  • Watching the horses graze in my pasture with the Smoky Mountains as a backdrop
  • Finding the ice on the water trough is already broken when I arrive in the morning (How do they do that?)
  • Bluebirds in the pasture year-round
  • Horses lying in the sun on a cold winter day
  • Watching my horses kick up their heels as they run from the lower pasture to the top of the hill
  • Finding new offerings right next to the manure pile
  • The sway and rhythm of being on horseback as we walk up mountain trails
  • Hearing my horse nicker at me every morning
  • Being my own boss
  • Seeing clients get "aha's" and watching what a huge difference it makes
  • Watching people transform before my very eyes
  • Teaching students to effectively facilitate experiences with horses
  • Having a horse come to the fence to greet new people who arrive at my office
  • Seeing the horses touch noses with the neighbor's dog
  • The smell of horses when you bury your nose in their neck
  • Being able to sense a horse looking into my office window
  • Those soft, wise equine eyes
  • Having a life with horses in it!
What are YOUR favorite things?

    Thanks Linda for these wonderful thoughts. My all time favorite is the warm air coming from the nostrils of my minis.

    Sharing one of our Spirit Song Equines,
    (our most adorable standard donkey included)with a child
    who dearly would love to have a horse of his/her own,
    allowing them to participate in the "owning" of that equine,
    and watching the wonder that goes on in the bonding of that
    child/equine relationship!

    The smell of the earth as it is thawing from a long winter's sleep
    Watching my dog run happily ahead of me while I ride my horse
    The feeling of power beneath me as I ask my horse to increase his speed!
    The look of a horse. I will never get over the admiration I feel when I look at a horse.
