Just a quick note to let everyone know how “Playboy” is doing. His training is coming along great. I have ridden him everyday this week. We are working on basic arena work, backing, sidepassing, trotting, and cantering circles. He loades easily into the trailer, crosses water, bridges, trotpoles, and logs. After our arena workout we go for a ride around town. Sometimes with other riders and sometimes by ourselves. Our road ride seems to be his favorite part of the day. On the road he has seen lots of different animals, cars, bikes, and other horseback riders.
When I am working with different horses and George is playing with “Danny”. Sandy spends time grooming ”Playboys” mane and petting him. She finallyhas him eating treats and carrots. He even follows her around the arena with all the other commotion going on. Tonia and Cindy get to feed him in the morning and at night. He meets them at the gate waiting patiently for his food. He is on the “lotta food” diet. And he eats every scrap. Even with his great appetite he will stop eating in exchang for a little lovin’.
That is the update for now. Maybe this weekend we can get a few pictures. It has been a great week.
