His Lordship is 3 weeks old today!

The Paddock Schmooze is 3 weeks old today, (I have a heap of photos so will do this in several lots sorry to be a bragging grandma but you don't have to look at them if you get bored )

And

1. He decides to give Jenny some of his valuable time in order to get Jenny used to handling ropes around him.


2.*I just need to make a note here as his grandmother that at no time does Jenny put ANY pressure on him. She is teaching him to soften away from pressure but is very very gentle in order not to set up any resistance on his part…



3. He is also rewarded every time he ‘gives’ with a good rub which he LOVES.




4. His Lordship’s Mother is on hand at all times for encouragement which, although embarrassing for him, is at the same time strangely reassuring.





5. His Lordship begins today’s lesson by deciding to start with a ‘sing-along’. He starts by humming and encourages Jenny to do likewise.




6. “No no” he says, “look, open your mouth and let rip – like this…”




7. He gets a bit carried away and pretty soon the opening refrain from ‘Wild Horses’ is heard loud and clear but Jenny can’t sing in tune!




8....His Lordship sings louder and louder to drown her out....
"Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away..."

Lesson continues...

*Having blown the cobwebs out with the Singalong he now gets down to the business of training Jenny.


* He starts by checking her pockets for contraband.It's amazing what people will try to bring into the paddock!



*Finding none is a bit disappointing so he walks around her to make sure.




*There really is none so he decides to instruct Jenny on the correct method to hold his hooves front…

Zephyr continues to train his Human

He then gets her to hold his back hooves, one at a time.


This is important for those Royal occasions when he might get tired.


Jenny is doing so well he decides to take her for a walk,
mostly to get away from his embarrassing Mother who is still humming away happily (She’s very musical)…



After 10 minutes of hard work it’s time for a royal nap.


Jenny and his Grandmother tip toe away and his Lordship snores away blissfully at his Mother’s feet…

CLaPorte, Jenny is quite short around 5ft 2 I think I should do the next training session then he will look like a dinky little foal again and NOOOO he is not going anywhere, his mother (and his grandmother - me) will simply not allow it - can you imagine the trouble he would get in to!

LoL, too funny! I am also 5'2" so i can just imagine how large he'd look next to me.

He is such a sweet sweet boy, i can totally tell. Smart and sane. He'd be no trouble at all here, and he'll see snow!

Awww! You can see his widdle premolars coming in!

I don't think we'll be getting bored with these pictures any time soon, Merlot. I haven't had time to comment much but I regularly check back here for a dose of Lord Lubbaduck's staggering cuteness.

I am here to learn! :)
