A Horse's View: Newt and the box trick by Stacy Westfall | Dec 21, 2014 | A Horse's View, Life | 10 comments Dear Diary…I can’t even explain this new ‘thing’ I am learning to do. I’m just going to put some pictures in here so I can try to remember it all.

I just kept sidestepping around it. NO WAY! – QH Duchess Reply Gerry Gonesilent on December 25, 2014 at 10:59 pm Newt! The answer is….flip the box and step inside! That’s ALWAYS it…my Mom doesn’t understand that I know how to flip everything!!! But, I wonder what she’ll think if I do it just for kicks. the 1/4 horse, Morgan Reply Sara McNeil on December 23, 2014 at 2:59 pm Newt, what size is this box? My mom wants to build one for me. I am not sure that is a good thing.

Reply Christine Carr on December 22, 2014 at 5:51 am “Dear Newt, I have same problem with my human. She seems to think that I am incapable of stepping OVER the box. Does she not realize that I can either go around it or over it? Seems like a silly thing to step ON the box but hey, the faster I do it the faster I’ll get out to the pasure to be with my friends, so I’ll do it.” – Dixie the Quarter Horse Reply Stacy on December 22, 2014 at 11:47 am Dixie…my human had the same issue. I repeatedly tried stepping all the way over the box. It was a stretch…but I could almost do it. Going around seemed the most logical…but these humans aren’t always logical, are they? -Newt Reply Christine Carr on December 22, 2014 at 5:19 pm LOL. Good to know I’m not alone, Newt! and you are right – Our humans are not always logical. -Dixie Reply Snoopy on December 21, 2014 at 9:42 pm Dear Newt, Wow, that looks like fun! I love to climb on boxes, but my Auntie Niki and MomToo won’t let me. They say it’s not safe. Pfft. If you can do it, maybe I can, too. Maybe you can talk to them and show them I won’t get hurt. Thanks, Snoopy the Quarter Horse Reply Stacy on December 22, 2014 at 11:49 am Snoopy- I spent a lot of time pawing the box to make sure it was safe. I know mom said that it was ‘reinforced’ but…they are only human. Mom lets me go really slow, no rushing allowed, so it feels pretty safe.-Newt Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
