When I went into the pasture today I brought some grain instead of a carrot, apple, or horse treat. I showed it to him, gave him a tiny little bit, then walked up to the gate. He followed me (slowly lol) and I gave him the rest and gave him lots of pets.
I did some groundwork with him and rode him in the obstical course (which he seems to like better than the arena), and then I let him eat grass for a while. Then I put him back in the pasture.
I went to the grain bin and filled a bag full of it, and went out in the pasture. I had him chase me for he grain....then I left. Waited maybe 10 minutes...went to the opposite gate and called for him. And.....he CAME! Even though the mean moody mare, Dolly, was by me, he came!
Sorry I just had to share that with everyone
