    I tried that yesterday but to no avail. I will try again. He seemed bothered by something near the barn so I tried approach and retreat, got him as close as I thought I could while just a bit out of his comfort zone but not too close so that he throws a fit and quit our ride there. It did drop several degrees while riding so maybe the weather hindered us too.
