I turned Aires out with CJ today because CJ needed some exercise (he got ridden yesterday, but my friend was in Phoenix all day today, so couldn't get out to exercise him and didn't want him to lock up, so she asked me to walk him or turn him out). He was completely CRAZY! Hand-trotted him to the turnout (okay, I admit we were kind of showing off, but still lol), then when we got to the turnout, he tried to bolt before I had even tried to take his halter off and wouldn't stand still for me to get it off. When I FINALLY managed to get it off, he bolted off at a full gallop and started bucking and farting. He rolled, then took off galloping and bucking and farting and trying to get CJ to be crazy with him. He's such a psycho, but it's totally unlike him!!
Then, when I went to bring him in so he could eat, he was doing okay, but then as I went to open the gate after haltering him, he tried to bite the hand I was using to open the gate! He was a gentleman walking to his stall (which surprised me beyond words!) and even stood nicely and didn't try to go to his food while I took off his halter. I just don't know what his deal is!
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
