Had a great time with Thunder and his owner yesterday. Cindi is really trying hard to understand and learn the exercises to help Thunder down the trail. Thunder continues to make good progress. We will keep working on his confidence and trust. These will be two big qualities that he will need when we head out on the trail alone. That is one of the things that he has had trouble with in the past, not being able to get very far from the barn or his herd mates. To do that takes a lot of self confidence and a want to be with whoever is riding him. These qualities take the magic pill, time, and I’m proud that Cindi is willing and able to provide Thunder with that. I know that when Thunder goes home in a few weeks that Cindi will do her best to help him to continue to develop these qualities in her horse as well as herself.
Need to find time to go and cut fire wood here pretty soon. It continues to be cold in the mornings. Was around 26 or so when I got up and the wood pile is thin. But first, Coffee.
