Paige Keaton57,548In memory of +Dirk Talamasca I am sharing a circle of friends from G+ I have shoved into a circle named. People Worth Keeping. As he was really into getting people connected. This circle is 700 people deep and it only shares 500. I need to split this in 2 and share all of you lovelies.. Dirk was a bad ass. He was what G+ was all about.

Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle. This is a circle of real women who have a G+ page just like me.  #circleshare   #circlesharing   #womenofgoogleplus  2013-10-30 17:36:0450023821

Zorro is afraid of men. Nobody knows exactly what happened before he came to us, but it doesn't take a genius. Talking about it with my coworkers, everybody had a story about a pet who was afraid of some heartbreakingly specific thing, like bald men, or shoes. The dog of my childhood was terrified of brooms.

Whatever is troubling Zorro, he doesn't have to think about it much in our 90% female program. His fear does not extend to his boy riders, or to the men who bring him hay. It's not a bad life.

Today I was leaving the stables when I saw people who looked lost, a man and his son. I stopped to sort them out and am so glad I did, because they were terrific. They were there for the boy's first lesson; he was 11 and excited but nervous. I think I was able to tell him enough about his horse (Apache) and instructor (the sweetest, my favorite) to put him at ease. They asked the best questions, offered to help get the horse ready, and thanked me with huge smiles. 

Although the boy had never been on a horse before, the two of them had taken a brief tour of the stables the other day. In his beautiful Israeli accent, the father said with confidence, "Luke, I saw him one time only, but the great beast has a gentle heart. He is my favorite." He pressed his hand to his chest.

Pinky.

Mike is 18, with both physical and mental challenges. He has areas of expertise - he's crazy about the calendar and can tell you in a flash what day of the week your next birthday will fall on. I asked him to name a holiday that starts with B and he came up with Boxing Day and Bastille Day in about half a second. He can't do basic subtraction. But nobody cares because the kid is like a pure light.

He has a particular verbal tic that's new to me. He can hold a normal conversation and respond appropriately - he's alert, he's there. But if you say something that doesn't require a response, or you speak to another person or a horse, Mike will shout out the most hilariously random answer. I think of it as interjection disorder. My coworkers and I chatter a lot about half-important stuff, to keep the rider aware of what's going on, and to keep the horses... more »

At the end of my day I like to go see Jack, usually at his stall door inside, but sometimes I go around the outside of the barn to visit him at his window.

If he's sleepy he'll just blink at me, but he almost always ambles over to give me his big furry head. It's pretty hard to leave this behind and go home.

Dakota, ready to go.

This lesson was fun because the riders were fairly independent and my job was just to be there as an "in case" sort of helper. Much less hands-on and backbreaking than the usual lesson.

My rider, age 8, was totally into helping groom and tack. The part she got most excited about was picking the dirt out of Dakota's hooves, which was awesome because I hate that part. I like it when kids are invested in the whole process, not just the fun time spent on horseback. 

And I like it when kids help put the gear away, because if I can't figure out where something should go, I can phrase it as a quiz. "I bet you can't tell me where the breastplate goes!" Win-win.

We put Dakota away and I walked the kid back out to her mom, through a sudden windy swirl of white petals which were coming off the trees. My small rider said,... more »

I don't know how long Summer and Jack lived together before coming to our program, but it was long enough to decide they loved each other. 

I didn't see it, but I'm told that the other day when Jack was out in a paddock and they led Summer out to join him, he was prancing and nickering like crazy when he saw her coming. Then they groomed and nuzzled each other and stood neck to neck for an hour.

This is them talking to each other with funny little noises.

After a long day of exhausting and fun horse stuff, tonight I'm working on writing horse biographies, to be laminated and posted on their stalls. I'm encouraged to include cute anecdotes, which means I have had the delight of going around quizzing people, learning all the cool stuff. Chim was in the Olympics!

I'm finding it really hard not to include, like, "Jack is just the bestest sweetest shaggy man." 

This project also gives me access to some of their birthdays - we don't know all of them, but the ones I've got, I am adding to my personal calendar. Jack's is coming up.

The view from the back of the party barn, nice even on a rainy day.

At the birthday parties we host, I experience a broad range of treatment by the guests' parents. At one extreme are the angry wealthy who can hardly bear to speak to the help. I've had women turn away from me mid-sentence when I tried to share helpful information for the safety of their kids.

But sometimes the pony staff are treated like guests, which is unnecessary but so sweet. As a recent party wound down, I stood in a back corner chatting with my co-workers. The birthday girl's dad visited us over and over, beaming, touching our shoulders, and bringing us plates of fruit, pizza, and of course terrible cake. He didn't have a lot of English, but it was plenty; most of what he said was "best party, best party."

Pinky has a habit called "cribbing" which means she chews everything and likes to take in great gulps of air that can lead to colic. At her age this is a real health concern. So she wears this special collar which puts the right amount of pressure on her throat to enable her to eat and breathe normally, but prevents the dummy from sucking in so much air she gets sick. She wears it round the clock unless she's being used in a lesson.

I may oversell this when showing new volunteers how to put it on. I change "could" to "WILL!! SHE WILL DIE WITHOUT THIS COLLAR!" which is a little dramatic, but we just don't risk Pinky.

When I do Jack's marathon brushing sessions it's usually midday on a weekend, the perfect time for random people with kids to drop by the stables for a visit. Twice now I've been deep in the zen rhythm of combing out unreal amounts of loose hair when I've heard "ooh there's a LADY in this one, let's see what the LADY is doing!!"

Both times the visiting kids have been sweet, tiny, and utterly thrilled to stand at the window and watch me do the most boring stuff. When I can coax Jack to change his focus from eating hay to being petted, well the kids just about lose their minds. And the parents want to hear at least a few of my stories: what I'm doing and why, and all kinds of horse trivia and anecdotes. I'm not a deep expert but I can answer anything they ask, which is fun.

I've never been in a position of zookeeper, or animal in the zoo (it is funny to be in a cage with spectators gawking in), but I really like it, in the same way I enjoy hanging out with (most) parents at the birthday parties we host, and helping orient new volunteers. I'm good at the patter and I never get sick of delivering it. Will I?

I never thought anything like being a tour guide would appeal to me, but I love sharing even the briefest facts about the program and particular horses. I guess I had to find the thing I cared enough about to want to give tours, to be so happy every time I get to show anybody all my favorite things. When the spectators like it too, when they stand with me in silence just smiling at Jack, we have Jack in common, and that's beautiful.___

Big Mama lookin flirty.

This is one of the grooming bays where we get the horses clean and tacked up before a ride. It's in a central, open spot, with a lot of people walking past who often stop to watch or pet a horse.

This is the most common spot for a horse to get nippy, because although they don't mind being brushed or saddled, nobody likes to have a girth tightened. It's pinchy for a minute. The horses are generally all sweet as pie at any other time, but especially with a known few, it's wise to stay clear of the chomp zone for these moments.

What's interesting to me is that I have never seen a horse nip a kid. It could happen, and I try to keep all hands clear when that girth is being adjusted. But what I've seen happen is dozens of kids, most of them strangers to any given horse, walk up and pet a nose at the exact wrong time and receive... more »

I don't think it is over-humanizing them to say that I think they know: we take care of the little ones.___

Two days in a row I have had a horse spook with a rider on. I'm told the change in the weather and the recent switch from winter to summer hay (this is a thing) have made the horses a little nutty. One got so worked up over his approaching lunch that he was bucking and kicking in his stall. I mostly know these horses to be such calm sweethearts that it's a little unnerving.

Still, yesterday was awesome. I was walking alongside the rider, a profoundly autistic girl with a tendency to leap off the horse every time he stops moving. In cases like this we use a team of three - one to lead the horse, and two sidewalkers whose job it is to keep a hand on the rider's ankle and an eagle eye on her at all times, to make sure she doesn't bail out. We can't watch the horse, the terrain, or anything else except that kid. We have to walk in an awkward, twisted position right alongside a... more »

We can't watch the horse, the terrain, or anything else except that kid. We have to walk in an awkward, twisted position right alongside a horse and somehow not get stepped on. Sometimes we have to run like that. It's tough but we get it done. 

When Apache reared and whirled around, I had no warning and no idea what was going on. Time slowed down, like it had with Dakota the day before. A bad, bad, uncertain moment with so many things going on. Still, the thing I was most aware of, surreally focused on, was the feeling of the girl's boot in my hand. We stuck like glue: sidewalkers to the girl, the girl to the horse. 

Nobody was thrown. Nobody was trampled. The team had minor heart attacks which we concealed from the girl, who I'm pretty sure thought it was all great fun.

I don't have a photo of Apache, so here's the opposite thing - Jack asleep in the sun.___

After! Not done, but much better. The rumpled business by his hind leg is where the fur naturally changes directions - there's no smoothing it.

I heard someone say "shedding comb" so that night I checked youtube to figure out what one looked like and how to use it. Today between lessons I poked around in the tack room until I found one, then went to groom Jack, thinking it would kill a little time, only I ended up being in there nearly the whole hour because that dude is a mess and a half.

I didn't even finish - there really is no end to the hair. I stopped because he was starting to get sick of me scraping him. Jack being such a gentleman, this manifested only in woeful glances and the smallest uneasy shifting of weight. 

This is a bucket of hair I gathered up afterwards, so he wouldn't eat it along with his hay.

Zorro is afraid of men. Nobody knows exactly what happened before he came to us, but it doesn't take a genius. Talking about it with my coworkers, everybody had a story about a pet who was afraid of some heartbreakingly specific thing, like bald men, or shoes. The dog of my childhood was terrified of brooms.

Whatever is troubling Zorro, he doesn't have to think about it much in our 90% female program. His fear does not extend to his boy riders, or to the men who bring him hay. It's not a bad life.

Horses having people names makes for funny confusion. I enjoy saying "Luke the kid" or "Will the man" because those sound like awesome nicknames, and specifying "the horse" is fun because it makes me sound like an idiot to people who don't know we have duplicates.

This is Luke the horse. I got to help with his desensitization training the other day - having been sick several times over the winter, he hasn't been used enough, and has forgotten some of his manners. 

So I helped scare the pants off Luke with stimuli that ranged from legitimately alarming to "come on, you big baby." The lift, a contraption that works like that claw game where you try to snag a prize, only it's for getting a person from a wheelchair to a horse, squeaks and rumbles and has big moving parts, so it made sense for Luke to hate it.

My job was to keep waving that thing while he went from terrified to bored. Took a while.

Then we went on a trail ride to visit all the weatherproof interactive toys mounted high on trees, only accessible from horseback (I love this). Luke went from edgy to horrified when we reached the spinnable color wheel. This mighty draft horse, this great big powerhouse was not having it with the little plywood rainbow.

So we played Wheel! Of! Treats!, rubbing a horse biscuit all over the thing to stink it up, then giving him that treat when he agreed to step a bit closer. Once he caught on that I was the treatkeeper, he went looking for the right pocket, and I got nibbled so gently, head to toe.___

While grooming Jack the other day, I totally poked him in the eye. Hard. He should have jumped, spooked, or held it against me. Being Jack, he just looked at me real sad.

Pinky.

Mike is 18, with both physical and mental challenges. He has areas of expertise - he's crazy about the calendar and can tell you in a flash what day of the week your next birthday will fall on. I asked him to name a holiday that starts with B and he came up with Boxing Day and Bastille Day in about half a second. He can't do basic subtraction. But nobody cares because the kid is like a pure light.

He has a particular verbal tic that's new to me. He can hold a normal conversation and respond appropriately - he's alert, he's there. But if you say something that doesn't require a response, or you speak to another person or a horse, Mike will shout out the most hilariously random answer. I think of it as interjection disorder. My coworkers and I chatter a lot about half-important stuff, to keep the rider aware of what's going on, and to keep the horses... more »

My coworkers and I chatter a lot about half-important stuff, to keep the rider aware of what's going on, and to keep the horses calm. None of it needs a reply at all, but it's like he wants to fill that conversational gap but doesn't quite have the hang of it. If you say "we'll be using the upper arena today," or "I'm adjusting your stirrup," Mike will belt out a delighted "Oh we're golden!" or "You're a party animal!" or "I think we're done here!" He has called me a wild woman and a laugh riot, neither of which is true but it's nice to be enjoyed.

I used to think being smart was the big thing, such an important thing. People love working with Mike, they get excited to see him, because with a spasming body and an imperfect mind, he has a constant smile, he has the best time up on a horse, and he can't wait to be friendly to everybody he sees. Great big shouts of laughter.

One day, near the end of our ride, he stopped repeating "It's official, I'm having TOO much fun," to ask if I was happy. He surprised me with that. I said I was. He said, "I knew it, that's why you're L.I.D., you're L.I.D., you're living in the dream."___

Luke is beautiful and unique but he's the fartiest horse on the planet. Walk behind him and you get lightheaded from the lack of oxygen.

Tonka's rider was late, so we got him all geared up and then had nothing to do but stand around and chat. Tonka was on crossties (a set of leashes meant to keep a horse generally in one spot) but did his best to turn sideways in his grooming bay, just so he could poke his head into our discussion and see what was going on. You can't tell me this isn't a smile.

Miss Pinky.

I now know that the only music that can be played at a 4-8 year old girl's birthday party is the Frozen soundtrack or anything by Taylor Swift. Literally these are the only things. This part of my job is much harder than the horse parts.

To calm them, you pet gently over the eyes because it reminds them of when their mothers used to lick them there.

It's also how you get rid of the ubiquitous eye boogers.

Sometimes they won't be photographed. That's Tweeder's butt.

Combine mild autism, language difficulties, fear, and the general defiance of being four, and you get a kid sitting on a horse with her arms crossed, chanting "No, no, no, no, no, no." Standard procedure with this kid is to say "Actually, yes," and forge on.

She stops fussing, but it's hard to tell if she's getting anything out of the lesson as we walk, trot, do stop/starts, go in circles. Until we're taking a break and she reaches down to pat me on the shoulder, and, with the smallest possible smile, says, "We go fast again?

I usually have a little downtime between a lesson and a party, so I like to visit Jack and give him a pep talk about being a good party horse. He doesn't get a lot of company and it seems to work best if he socializes a bit with one person before encountering 15 shrieking partygoers. It was a good thing I dropped in on him today because Jack had evidently had a roll in the mud.

Most of it had dried, which would have been easy to brush out of shorter hair. But Jack's extra hairy for winter, and overdue for a haircut, so this was an epic disaster of dry mud sticking dead hair to live hair to wet mud to skin. Good god, that guy was a mess and a half.

But I had half an hour, and Jack was into it, and I had the best time getting him clean(er). The brushes I had were not up to the task, so I mostly went at him with my hands, pulling out tufts of dirty fur. We were standing in a gray... more »

As I worked on his sides, he kept reaching his head back to me. When a horse does this it usually means he's not pleased with what you're doing - he might have a sore spot or the brush is too harsh on his belly. A head reaching back means you'll be getting a shove or a nip. Jack does it to give me kisses. He likes me.___

My man Tonka, whose rider today was only the second adult I've worked with. She was described to me as a "sweet spirit" but I didn't realize that meant a killer smile and the kind of gracious, powerful charisma that makes people feel honored to help her. Like royalty. She said my name and thanked me every single time she asked me to do something, and she knew exactly what sort of assistance and support her body needed. So much different than working with a kid. She is lovely.

When a rider's body is injured or weak, she may not be able to give the horse all the usual signals. It's amazing to see how quickly a horse (the right horse) can adapt and learn to recognize more subtle cues. Without being able to kick, his rider still got Tonka to trot, basically just by asking. He is attuned to the smallest of inputs. At one point she got him to change directions just by turning... more »

What a good boy, a horse who pays attention and tries to do everything he's asked, the perfect horse for today's job.___
