Slight brag-about as calm as they get

So, I am so proud of Guinness and his sensibility. Yesterday, we were riding in the Coverall indoor, with 4 other horses. 2 were instructors and 2 were students. We were resting in the middle of the ring, just standing, which, BTW, is what we do best , and all of a sudden snow started avalanching off the roof. Made a loud, long noise as it slid, and shadows from the changes in light level coming thru were dancing. The other 4 horses ALL proceeded to totally lose it. Spooking, bolting, you name it. Guinness just raised his head, looked slightly, and proceeded to just stand there. SO proud of him! And, he was then the only one who would go to the "scary corner" where the noise had been. Such a good boy. And this is his first winter ever with an indoor......

What a good pony:)

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks-he really IS the picture of "sensible". Plus, I believe he would never expend more energy than absolutely necessary! Parking lot attendant would be a perfect job for him!
