TG I had to put my three survivors in another pen completely. We stripped, limed and resanded the old pen but it still took a year before they would walk in voluntarily. We now have two pens. EMS glad he'll be home soon.
Soooooooo... first time EVER. DH and I took Gunnie and Charm out for a ride tonight. Gunnie was sour sour sour in the pen and I flippantly said, "Well I could slap a bridle on Charm and we could get him out of that pen.
Charm has not been backed in 2 years ... I swung on her bareback and off we went. She was solid as a rock .. which was fabulous for DH and Gunnie. It was fun.
I love my mare. Sure glad she's not one of those crazy Ay-Rabs ...... oh .... wait .....*snort*
Now that is progress! Both the husband and Gunner need a female to encourage them to step out of their comfort zone. Next we will be hearing that your husband and Gunner are winning the Tevis and you and Charm are regulated to the side lines. LOL
I want to be there when he tells you how to handle his horse. Just to hear the comments our dear Texasgal makes. Shalom
He's doing really well, but is trying to do too much at one time and Gunnie just shut down. We went back some very basic stuff so he was successful and then we just headed down the driveway. I think it was good for DH and Gunnie...
