Student (and Lesson Horse)
of the Month:
    Dorrie Bettle and Mickey Blue Eyes first became acquainted with Blue Goose when they arrived approximately 11 years ago to be filmed as part of a Channel Six story on Nokota horses for prime time. Mickey is a 'spokeshorse' for the Nokota Horse Conservancy and has taken Dorrie with him when he travelled to Kentucky and Massachusetts and many local venues where he teaches people about this unusual breed.
      Mickey came into Dorrie's life when he was just a three year old. Together they explored the trails around Chatham and stepped things up a bit when they came to Blue Goose. They have participated in some eventing and currently are working in Dressage. Darcy rides Mickey in the A-rated Dressage shows. They travelled to NC at the end of March and Mickey earned his two qualifying scores for the BLM show in the fall.
      Mickey is a horse of many talents: not only does he do Dressage and enjoy a good gallop over fences once in a while, he is also an accomplished artist of some well-deserved repute (AKA 'Mickeyangelo'!). With Dorrie's background in art and Mickeyangelo's natural talent, they create some pretty fancy tee-shirts that are occassionally on sale at the shows at Blue Goose. Their art has been the subject of several newspaper articles.
 Mickey is also a trickster: in addition to handling a paint brush, he can wave a flag, count, bow, take the hat off your head and when you least suspect it, he will steal a kiss and then smile :)
      Dorrie's riding experience was slim indeed until she met Mickey: a year or two in the saddle as a child and again in her twenties. Then a long dry spell until in her forties she shared her life with her beloved Maudy mule, riding in western tack. It was when she was muleless and having no intention of getting another equine that she Mickey... and he insisted that she take him home with her.
