May 8, 2009

Tonight, we worked in the roundpen with the bridle on. LBR seems to know this means "business" and had a great workout. It's getting warm in Central Texas (heat index > 100 tonight) but the wind is showing no signs of stopping (gusts > 25 mph).

We headed to the jumping arena and led LBR over some low jumps and then into the barn for some grooming.

He looked out the window before turning around in the grooming stall and saw a bicycle parked outside and FREAKED out. All we can figure is the handle bars were horns. We calmed him down with quiet reassurance and got him into the grooming stall. He slowly calmed down to the near-sleep level and grooming went well.

We headed back to the paddock for more "routine"...led to the water trough and he took his bio-break 2/3rds of the way, drank for a while and we ended back at the gate with alfalfa cube treats.
