Whispers from the Founder

Welcome to the Horse Whispers Blog
February 01, 2012

Greetings, and welcome to the Horse Whispers blog page. Going forward, I will be updating this blog regularly, but I will also be responding to comments and questions more frequently. So, as you read what is written here, if you have something you would like to say or ask, feel free to speak up and add your entry below.

As for who is writing this, that's me in the picture at the top, kissing a Palomino colt named Redford. While it may seem a little odd that the mind that conceived Horse Whispers belongs to a man, if you think about it, it makes sense. Being male has put me in a position to observe and note the way girls - and I use the term "girls" to mean young as well as adult women - seem to have something qualitatively different going on in their relationships with horses than boys and men do. Something it seems to me is recognized by horses, and reciprocated. Poetically put, girls seem to be free to hear horses whispering to them in their dreams in ways that boys do not.

I'm basing this on my observations of two women in particular, to whom I would like to dedicate Horse Whispers: Karlynn Keyes, and her daughter Valor Lee. You will see them pictured here. Karlynn, who is my partner, and who is also the President of The Trail of Painted Ponies, has been a horsewoman since she was a young girl growing up in Minnesota. She passed her passion on to her daughter while raising her in Arizona. Spending time around them both, I have noted that horses talk to them in whispers only they can hear.

May you continue to hear horses whispering to you in your dreams.

    Mr Barker, these figurines are extraordinary. It's like you've tapped into the psyche of us horsey girls. Looking at these figurines, it's like someone has turned some of my best memories into sculptures. I can't wait to start this collection and share them with my girls. Thank you for exploring this uncanny relationship between a girl and her horse.
