A funny picture from Dante's first show...

I recently got a new cell phone, and while the pictures and such were being transferred from my old phone, I had them transfer pictures off the phone I had two years ago (which my dad is now using). At any rate, I discovered a picture that I took at Dante's first horse show, where he was shown at weanling halter.
At any rate, he has a knack for untying ropes... which means it's next to impossible to keep him tied to a trailer for long without adequate amounts of entertainment, food, and the proper amount of fawning befitting his spoiled little rear. After his class, I tied him back up to the trailer and, at some point or another, he started untying his rope... and then Ruby's... and then we caught him headed for the unattended trailer and horses parked beside us. Rather than argue with keeping him tied, we put him in the little stock trailer, gave him a bucket of water and his jollyball, and let him play in there until I could find a better fix after Ruby's class.
On the way out of the arena, the man running the gates told me I was supposed to go straight to my trailer, because there was a problem.
I found this:

(Sorry about the not-too-awesome quality)
The little bugger had decided to -- for whatever reason -- climb into the hayrack and get himself stuck! He'd been lying down when I came, but having not only me, but a few gawking passerby suddenly staring at him made him stand before I could get the picture. My parents don't usually do much with the horses, so they weren't sure how to get him down, and my friend was a novice, so they'd just let him up there, since he didn't seem too upset.
I ended up just snapping a lead on him and giving him a little tug and lots of room to get down, and fortunately he only got a little cut on his face through the whole ordeal. But we have never let him alone in a trailer without putting a plank up there to keep him out.

What a goober. That just proves the Murphy's law applies to horses too. LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yes, he still goes around untying himself and others.... as well as opening gates, opening doors, and his latest trick - opening the escape door and center divider on the trailer. He's even 'broken' into the house once, through the sliding door. We have these chains with bull snaps that we have to use to hold shut the gates, because he hasn't figured out the bull snaps yet. And when we have horses tied up, the rope has to be out of his reach.
