No, I'm not teaching them to catch catfish with their hoofs.  It occurred to me that 4 of the seven horses have never seen pool noodles so out they came last night.  As usual Mattie, our resident ham, stole the show.  Trooper wasn't too sure about what I was going to do with them.  Mattie was up for whatever I decided to do. Afterwards, I left them laying there and went in for dinner.  When I came out I found several with teeth impressions in them.  :lol:

Love it Mike!  Mattie seemed to love his noodle necklaces!  hehehe...  Very nice!  You will win Trooper over eventually.

 

You must clean up the manure daily.  I don't think I have ever seen manure piles in your videos!  :-)  


I've learned that no amount of money can substitute for class.

I discovered that if you quit feeding them, they don't poop. LOL. Actually we clean daily and having them spending a lot of time out in the pastures it cuts down on the work a bunch also. I expect Trooper to be up for a necklace in the next day or so.

Last night I brought out the noodles again for Troopers 2nd lesson and last lesson.  After that, it was tarp training time.  He's rapidly eating up my stupid things to do with a horse.  I've only got one thing left and that requires a very high trust between us so it will be awhile before I try that, probably.

I just love that horse.  You are exactly the person he needs because he loves attention and he loves fun!
