[QUOTE=Ladytrails;2923490]Hunter, CW - I enjoyed the pictures. You're looking good, CW!
Stan, that hole in the float looks like somebody was handling a firearm and shot the float. It's awfully nicely shaped for a random run-in with an object in the paddock. .
Now you have got me thinking bullet hole. The float is parked at the end of a long drive in a straught line to the road. Now add in my profession A probation officer and responsible for a number of crims going to prison. I have at the moment one who sends messages out with new released men, he knows my address and he tells the parolees. We will be dealing with him in due course. But on close inspection it looks more like it was punched out, I think a bullet would have left a smaller hole and dammage further in which I will check later. Phew.
Bugs settled this afternoon and the spell in the float did him some good. Backing him out he hops backwards like a rabbit, funny to watch but not safe for him.
I walked him back in but this time when backing I kept stopping him, then starting, so he had to take one step at a time. Took him three shots to get the idea of walking out. He was loading great walking straight in no more dramatics so I'll see in the morning if how to load and unload has taken, then its hang on for dear life and ride.
I also walked Stella up the ramp but just stood her there and let her relax. The tart knows what to do she just refuses, bit more training tomorrow on trying to get her to hook on to me.
I have to dispatch a sheep in the morning. Does anyone want to see photos.
Just an after thought, I had taken my sun glasses off this morning when Stella she left SWMBO and walked up to me. I wonder if being able to see my big blues made a difference. Ill try batting my eyes at her tomorrow.
