February 13, 2010

Gary & Cindy headed over to see LBR around 11:30 a.m. We knew it was going to be to muddy to ride, but wanted to spend some time with him.

When we walked down to his paddock, his head was buried in his tasty round bale of hay. He didn't want to come through the mud to the gate but eventually came up to great us.

After haltering and leading to the stables, we shared in grooming LBR. He had rolled again (silly horse - this is a losing battle and it's 2 against 1 on the weekends).

We decided to work on ground manners and exploring the stables. Gary led LBR down the driveway to where the trailers are parked. LBR made many friends along the way....Gypsy, Keeper, and others.

LBR did well as long as we kept walking but got a bit anxious when asked to stand and be patient.

We continued the lesson leading through the stables and out to the common area where LBR loves to graze. After a while there we headed back towards the paddock. We did some lead-line patterns over the poles in the grass arena and LBR was PERFECT....this is a horse who needs a purpose as he was happy and engaged for both Gary & Cindy during this exercise.

We ended with treats in the paddock.

It may be dry enough to ride a bit tomorrow as the wind is dry and strong.
