Well, today’s lesion went so so much better then yesterday’s, first because he has a better idea of what I am asking for, and he did quite well, second he just seemed to have more pep today..
However the real reason it went as well as it did, is that I didn’t take brandy away this time, I did it in the main field and I did him first, and she went with him loose but matched him on the outside and when I asked him to turn, she would turn, so in a way, she showed him the ropes.. then she kinda backed off and just watched as I did him, then I called her over and switched them out, and he watched her and even trotted and at one point galloped up and past her in play..
this was awesome as it continued his workout, got both of them awake and up to go and at the same time, worked great because both had to listen to me on the other end of the line at the same time.. its was a win-win, that left a big smile on my face..
Lots to learn for sure but for the second day on a lunge line (and I know that he has not been worked that way for at least a year and no idea before that if it was done or not, but unlikely)
Brandy was showing him how it was done! he watched with interest, that’s for sure.
