Relationship building

We shared a carrot in a rustly plastic shopping bag in the wind, and now that is a very desirable noise.  :)

Then we had a short lesson on moving laterally over to the fence and standing while I climbed up there.

Then we goofed around.  Because that's what I'm good at.  And I didn't want to drag out a saddle after trimming a horse and a naughty donkey.

At one point he lost interest in me so I walked away and sat down.  He thought that was interesting.

We had some really sweet quiet time.
He thought about leaving at one point, walked a step or two away, then changed his mind and came back.  Love it.  One of these days we're going to be inseparable.

Aww, that will be lovely. What we all dream of with our equids but rarely achieve!

I'd love to hear some thoughts on mules vs horses as time goes on. Mules are fascinating creatures, and the differences must be intriguing.
