Took last week off doing anything. The humidity got bad and I don't like to sweat.
So updates from yesterday and today!
Doesn't he just look thrilled?
My first ever ear shots with him! Today was the 3rd time I've sat on him and the 1st time we unhooked the lead rope. We worked on forward motion. We ended with some nice walk-stop transitions with a light squeeze and a walk. Much better than how we started.
Tomorrow we try again, after a visit from the farrier for a reset on his shoes and a trim.
He has been with the yearling (Stryder) since last year and thinks the yearling is his baby. He's super protective and wouldn't let Sammy near him for 2 days, now he just kind of hangs his head at their antics. Pickle-Pony makes a great babysitter.
