The Best Movie Dogs of all Time

In March of 2018 Variety published an article entitled “The Best Movie Dogs of All Time” There were 20 in the list. Toto was #3… Lassie was #2… And Benji was #1. Quoting Variety: “Benji is a timeless family film about a tiny stray dog whose gentle soul touches everyone around him. There’s a feeling of naturalism and sincerity at work here that helps explain why this mischievous mixed-breed mutt holds such a firm place in the hearts of moviegoers around the world.” This, 44 years after the original Benji was released. God’s hand at work, up close and personal.

See the Difference Relationship Makes

The most amazing thing happened down at the barn! It reminded me why we have been so obsessive about getting the relationship right with each of our horses before anything else. Even before training. Relationship that gives the horse the choice, the free will to make it so. And what a difference it has made to this newcomer as he stumbled his way through the learning process. Our horses have never stopped trying, never stopped listening, never stopped giving. And they are with us because they want to be. As you will see in this video. Read More→

Have you ever wondered what kind of person could begin writing a book like The Soul of a Horse less than a year-and-a-half after acquiring his very first one? I have. There were times when I thought I was crazy. How could all of the discoveries we were making be true? Surely someone would have been talking about them before now. “Keep writing,” Kathleen said. And I, the dutiful husband, did. And I’m so glad I did.

Joe Speaks Up For Dogs

The Treat That’s Actually Good For Your Dog

A Barn with No Stalls!

Not even one. Our herd of seven has free-choice access to the breezeway and the side shed 24/7. When a horse is forced to live in a stall he is living in a manner that directly opposes the way he is genetically designed to live and the resulting stress can wreak all sorts of havoc with his emotional and physical well being.

Why did I need to know about this?

Because domestic horses are really nothing more than wild horses in captivity.

Excuse me??

It’s true.

Domestic horses and wild horses are genetically exactly the same. Read More→
