The horses on set are working just as hard as any of us humans and in my opinion they don't get enough credit.
The main animal character on the show is a black Quarter-Horse named Spartan. We always have to laugh on set when Spartan is sleeping in the barn as we set up a shot, and then as soon as we roll the cameras he is alert and on his mark.
I spend lots of time catching up with friends that I dont get the chance to see during the spring, summer and fall.
I also try and get home to see my family and friends back in Ontario, and maybe even plan a trip somewhere hot.
When we are filming my day begins around am when I get showered & dressed, brush my teeth and head out to the barn to do chores.
I find it fascinating to see how they interact and communicate with one another. I am continually learning more and would love to spend more time with those who have the ability to communicate to animals through body language and understanding.
I enjoy that saying and I feel that in many cases, it is all about a person's ability to see through the exterior of their partner.
Sometimes I am able to talk the greater powers into letting me do certain stunts that I feel are safe to do.
I love how in every episode there is a different "Guest Star" horse.
