At lunch time, the temperature was up to 50F but that dang wind was still gusting. Jackson was doing better, but still not happy.
|I have no idea what they are looking at, all perky eared. Maybe I had a bad hair day.|
It was a bit of a trick getting him out of the pasture. This guy kept trying to stick his head in the halter hung over my shoulder.
|Take me. Take me pleeeeze!|
After Jackson was back in the pasture, I got Winston out. I didn't have my breeches on as I hadn't planned on working with him. We had a load of wood delivered and it still needed to be stacked -- I was conserving my energy for that. But, there was Winston pleading to come out and play. I set up some jumps in the arena and he free jumped for a bit -- on the longe line so he wouldn't be tempted to hop the fence again. Afterwards, he got a turn at the grass and dandelions and then I introduced him to crossing over a bridge. He wasn't too sure at first -- he pawed it a few times -- but then went calmly over. Such a good boy.
By the way, I'm playing with putting my weekly training schedule on my side bar. Just a snap shot -- with details when something significant (in my mind) happens.
Jackson was happy to get his blanket on this evening. Hopefully, he'll be more interested in breakfast than sunshine tomorrow.
