Then I was feeling like he was doing good and I got some moxy and decided to try to jump him, so i set up a little cavalletti and by god it was only a foot high, but he jumped it.. and he did it a few times.. I was so happy, I must have looked like a retard, because I jumped off and started hugging him and telling him what a good horse he was :)
So I cooled him down and then took the saddle off in the arena, and let him go.. I figured he'd run back to the heard.. nope, he followed me, nuzzling me along the way, all the way back to the gate.. I think he wanted to come with me. I guess our little coming to Jesus talk this weekend and our workout Monday, must have been our "join-up" moment... I have high hopes for him... He's a good horse.. you just have to be really stern with him.
Now I need to make Jumps.. I'm excited :)
That is about all the new here on the range..
I will leave y'all with some pictures of our tasty meals we have been having...
