Looking for JUST the right spot~That's My World~080911
I love to watch my horses when they are led down to the arena. This is their "free time". They all love to roll and here is Sunni looking for just the right spot in a huge manure pile! Apparently he found it TWICE! He does roll all the way over, but after getting one side covered with manure, he got up and rolled the other side. He is learning to THINK instead of just REACT and I'm proud of his training! It was windy on this day and I took him out for some work in the round pen and other stuff. I suddenly realized that the trees' leaves were blowing. He did spook at the tie rack, but settled right down. He also spooked a little while I was walking him up to the round pen. BUT, he didn't spin and bolt. That's a big step for this horse, who is VERY aware of his surroundings and worries about them. He's learning to THINK and not just react! I'm pleased to see this improvement in him...maybe it is just maturity? That's My World for Tuesday, August 9, 2011. To see other participants, please go to: http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/
