It has helped that Missouri has been in Spring since December. We have had very little cold and no snow at all.

We skipped winter too. That's why I'm kinda surprised he pulled that crap. I expect it after a cold snowy winter, but that was the first time ever he just flat out said "no". Every other time, I've been able to work him through it and get some productive work out of him. Hope this isn't the start of new trend.

Oh yes...they are all feeling it! Even my 19 year old pony is acting like a 3 year old instead of the usual 6! Lol

Excel tried to bolt on me a few times yesterday; he was feeling good with all this great weather. We went from treacherous snowstorms a week and a half ago to sun and 75 degree weather this week. Shedding season has been oh so fun....

MyBoy, you were supposed to take him back out on the trail again. You didn't complete the lesson. Next time he cuts up, working him when he hurries home is good but take him back out again. He'll likely go a hundred yards then balk. That's when you walk him back then work him again. It's imperative that you see this through until he'll head out without a fight and returns without rushing. Be sure to allow an hour or so as it may take this long.

Any other day, I would agree with you. But that day I chose to live over winning. He tantrum lasted a good 5 minutes. I was absolutely exhausted. We got back safely without allowing a bolt, and came back mounted and alive, so I was good with that. We've since been out two other times and done some "listening" work. Any time he looks toward the tree line or otherwise takes his attention off me, I remind him I'm up there. We go through a few weeks of this nonsense every spring. My good boy will be showing up again soon.

I took Sunny out on the trail today and I almost needed a crop to get her moving (and she is only four, mind you!). She is the laziest bum on the planet.

It was in the mid-80s today. So happy the weather is back warm, although we don't get too much of a winter here anyway.

I'm looking forward to more spring. Seeing what grass looks like again, horses will be stoked to run nude around the field day and night....

I took Molly out today after the winter off....Boy, was I in for a treat. We came back with a wet saddle blanket and sweat all over her; she was so excitable and worked up a sweat just walking and fighting me for more rein.

Oh, spring is fun....
