Hi. I'm Reggie, aka David's horse. I want to tell you about my day, because nobody around here listens to me.
Here I am, first thing this morning, staring at the neighbors. This isn't a nice picture of me; I have very good conformation and I'm not base-narrow, it's just the way I was standing. Anyway, I tried to tell the humans that there was a problem next door, but nobody listens to me. Even my brother Paj wouldn't listen to me.
The humans got in the car and went over to Jan's. Here she is, watering her
manure pile compost heap. Who does that?
Mom and Jan went to Elvis' fancy-schmancy show barn. They drove right by the neighbors. Mom even said "Oh, I wonder where the other mare is" as they drove by. I tried to tell them, but nobody listens to me.
Mom and Jan watched this big horse rehearse his freestyle for Championships next weekend. They ooohed and ahhhed. Big deal. Who wants to work that hard? Not me.
On the way home, they finally saw what I tried to tell them all morning - the neighbor mare was loose, and she was trying to get back into her pasture with her buddy. The neighbors have a really bad fence, and the mare was so upset the humans were scared the mare was going to try to jump or run through the barb wire. They called Dad to help. I'm kind of proud of my humans, because they were able to get the mare back in her pasture safely, even though two sets of other neighbors had tried and couldn't do it. Of course they should have listened to me in the first place, but they're only human.
