Jamie Cearley, PhDMeet Mosie, my little helper on the farm. 

We spend most of our days working on a wide variety of projects all geared toward keeping our small horse farm running smoothly. Some folks think Mosie isn’t much help when they see me struggling and slaving away while she lays nearby and sleeps, or worse yet has her little snoot right up in whatever I am trying to accomplish. But what they don’t know about Mosie is I would rather work with my dog than most people.

Here are six reasons why:

1. She has great enthusiasm for anything we are doing.

Mosie is always excited to start a new project. She has to see every tool I get out, follow me on every trip back to the barn, she absolutely loves it when we dig, which is far too often, and best of all she behaves as though horse manure is chocolate. You simply could not ask for a more positive enthusiastic work partner. No complaints or dragging around from Mosie, she literally jumps right into whatever the task.
