The Paddock Schmooze trains a New Human

Lord LubbaDuck (also known as Zephyr moo or The Paddock Schmooze) gave up some of his valuable time to train a Human (my friend Jenny) today...

1. Jenny approaches His Lordship in the correct manner afforded royalty - gently, calmly and with a friendly (but not overbearing) scratch on offer.
2. His Mother gives her approval.
3. They discuss what they would like to achieve, Human training is going well.
4. In just 10 seconds His Lordship has trained Jenny to massage him in the right spots.
5. All over.
6. Now he asks her to stand while he (thoughtfully) chews her jacket.
7. His Lordship has now trained jenny to stand still while he leans on her
8. Now he gets Jenny to walk around him while he hums a tune. (Wild Horses I believe)
9. His Lordship feels Jenny has learned a lot for a person so he ends the session before she gets bored, with...
10. A Royal kiss.

It should be noted here that at this stage His Lordship lay down in the long grass and went to sleep.

I know they're not like people's genes but I've seen many different colored horses with different colored eyes. A recessive gene can show up anywhere and because I don't know his genetic make up I asked.

Gollamb is adorable. Cute name as well. His lordship seems to be training all of you very well if he's even got the dog playing with him. Merlot looks to be one proud mama too.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Sorry Bloobabe I realise I never answered your query there. No his eyes are going dark - he had the blue foal colour but now they're the usual dark brown.
And yes his Lordship is training EVERYONE even visitors, but he is a terrific teacher as he always rewards good behaviour with a lipschmacking kiss

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

your commentary had me laughing! He is too cute!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Today's cuteness fix

I just can't help myself....

Lord LubbaDuck snores! He really does - he snored away blissfully while I groomed his mother. He's the most laid back foal I have EVER encountered.

Then a few freinds dropped round to see him and he did a 'meet and greet' and kissed everyone before showing off by powering around the paddock at warp speed with his mother in tow. He showed his slaloming skills through the trees and finally ended by galloping back to us before slamming on his brakes in real quarter horse style right in front of us. His poor Mother was puffing like a steam train. Sorry I did not have my camera with me.

In the mean time, Gollamb enjoys hanging out with his Mother Islamb.
