New thing!

Hi all!!

I had hoped to get to play with my horse on Sunday and I did a little bit. After Amanda helped me move the rabbits to the barn, I had to get them all squared away with little things. Both horses were interested in the moving process. I had to take some carrots to the rabbits and naturally the horses got some too. Well as I was on my way to the house, Seven decided I had to have some more carrots on me somewhere and he followed me to the gate. I decided that we could make a game out of it. I got him over to the pedestal and asked him to get on it. (this is at liberty, I had no halter on him) I ended up with him with his front feet on the pedestal!! I also got hindquarter yields and draw back to me. Seven gets on the pedestal when I am playing on line but I have never got him to do it at liberty. He always thinks it's boring or I drive him too much. This time I must have balanced my drive and draw. How interesting!!! I also had no food on me what so ever so all I could do was "be pleased" and scratch him lots! Once Seven gets something he gets it so he kept offering to get on the pedestal! So cool!! I really had an interactive time with him and it was quality time at that. What an awesome evening!!


  1. Awesome ... keep up the good play!
