I love this goofy picture. He looks like a Muppet.
I put a fly mask on him for the first time. He doesn't love it. That morning I had to leave before the sun came up.
I also put fly spray on him for the first time. He was very upset. Each time I sprayed him he jerked like he'd been hit with electricity. Scout wanted the treats I had, and ended up crowding and blocking Duncan's attempts to escape. It almost looked like he was trying to help him cope. Whatever he was doing, it worked. Duncan still didn't like it but he settled down and accepted it pretty quickly.
Here you can see how one is able to focus better than the other. :)
We worked on desensitizing with the lariat. No prob.
And ground driving. We need a lot more practice but it was an excellent first session. He got confused but not overly upset about it. I can't wait to play again today. :)
This horse really is something else. He takes to things so quickly.
