submissive / docile

L - iphone / T - Nikon

It's wonderful to be in the presence of a gentle creature - one that is well-trained and obedient to your command. It is especially important when an inexperienced rider is on a large horse, like I was. My horse tried to make his own path on occasion but a tug this way, or that, to the reins got him right back on track. Because he was well-trained it made me feel in perfect control – it put me at ease and made for a pleasant ride on a crisp autumn day. I loved it. / i am in love with this dog, that i named mason. he is the perfect companion - always at attention for my commands, always eager to please. it's hard to believe someone could have left this dog behind. he has been my joy for a week now. i don't even mind taking him out to pee on rainy days - now that's love.

Let me start out by saying that I completely LOVE that flickr widget!!!! How cool is that? Would you mind if I borrowed a little bit of that magic?

I remember being on a horse when I was younger who knew full well that I had no experience, or no power over him....he just stood there in the grasses, munching away...completely ignoring my gentle requests to move along..somewhere, anywhere. A very sweet and gentle horse....but he knew he was in charge of things, and he was rather lazy about it.

The horse riding sounds great! I've never been on a horse and it looks scary, too. They are so big!

Mason is another cutie! Hope he gets a home soon.

Like Gayle, I have never ridden a horse. And me a Texan. For shame. I'm putting that on my bucket list.

And I am in love with Mason also.

You know, we just got our first dogs a few months ago. I have truly never had dogs. I didn't know. Oh, I didn't know how wonderful it could be. I'm right there with you, Taylor.
