Misty's Monday Muse - Slicker Training

My Lady and I plan on enjoying lots of trail rides together.  The weather can change quickly in Colorado, so its a good idea for riders and horses to be prepared for rain.

While I was at school this summer my trainer, Andie Lee, taught me that rain slickers do not eat horses.  They flap around and make rustling noises, but they don't bite.  I kept my ear on that slicker, but I was very brave and did not get silly or overreact.

Don't I look good in yellow?

Ready to hit the trail,


  1. Another fear overcome. Good for Misty.

  2. Hooray for Misty! Yes... yellow looks great on you!

  3. Oh Misty, you are so brave and smart. Yellow is definitely your color too!

  4. Very brave girl, Misty!
    I like the human for scale - I didn't know what a big girl you are. I like big horses!

  5. Misty,

    You are always a brave girl, and your training with the slicker proved to be another place to show it. Yellow is your color!

    Please tell your Lady that I appreciated her comments over at my blog. I can't wait to check out the California Salad Bowl recipe. I don't think you would like the green olives, Misty, but who knows? You are not afraid of much! Happy trail riding!

  6. that IS quite the skill! and can you walk over tarps too?!

    very smart to work on de-sensitizing BEFORE the pouring, rainy day comes along... like trying to teach a horse how to trailer when it has to get to the vet hospital!

  7. Wow, what great photos! Misty, you are so tall- I had no idea (or that human is a midget). You are very striking and beautiful, and also very courageous around slickers! Good work.
