    When I had worked with my yearlings in the past, I would always get them used to a phone ring sound. I've had horses spook and nearly run off when my cell phone would ring while riding, so I make sure to get them used to that.

    What about walking over things? Such as logs, etc? I think that would be a good one to work on.

    It's always nice to work with the youngsters really well and then later being able to saddle break them really easy without much trouble. :)

    Riverbelle, I love the phone ringing idea! I will definitely add that to the list.

    He currently has downed logs in his pen, and likes hopping them when he gets excited. That one will hopefully be easy to do in hand. :)

    He had a farrier visit yesterday and he was an amazing gentleman. After my farrier did each foot, he also had me practice holding that way and showed me how to run the rasp to level the hoof wall with the sole. It was very cool, and Reuben stood quietly through all of it. I thought that was amazing patience for such a babe. :)

    Anyway, here are some pictures of us messing around while waiting for the farrier yesterday.

    What a smart and handsome boy you have!! Love your choice of tack color on him! Star is a sorrel, and hunter green always looks good on sorrels/chestnuts.... he's quite a beauty, and your goat simply is precious as well :)
