Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I have lots to tell you about! As you know, #1 was gone for a whole week. Then she showed up yesterday morning, early, gave me a good brushing, and then she put socks on me!
She told me I would be going somewhere really exciting for a while, where I would learn lots of new stuff. I thought it sounded really cool, so I hopped right into the horse van:
When we got to the new place, they put me in a box for a little while, and then this gentlemen, Mr.JJR, came and put on my bridle, but with a new, gentler bit, and my saddle on, and took me to the outdoor school. #1 told me he would be my new teacher. First he worked me for a while with a lunging rein:
I had never been in such a big workspace before. It was very cool! Then, Mr. JJR got on my back:
He said I was supple and a really good boy. Actually, he forgot to mention that I am also very handsome…
I am not used to all this hard work, and it looks like I am going to be doing a lot of it, so #1 is going to have a chat with Ms. S tomorrow about nutrition and supplements for me. In the meantime, here is my new paddock:
You can't see it but I also have a shelter so I can get out of the rain and cold if I want to.
