Trooper takes advantage of everything he can. With the Hotwire not working, he likes to lean over the fence for the grass, after all it’s always greener on the other side. He will walk up next to me, lean over lying his neck on the wire and break the closest plastic post. He then looks at me like “What? I didn’t do it.” I’ve never seen him hit the live Hotwire before but yesterday was another story. The fence charger was hooked up but turned off for Saturday so the solar cell could bring the battery up to full charge. Sunday morning I walked outside and he was in full lean eating the grass. Realizing the charger was off I walked down and turned it on. When I was about halfway back, here comes Trooper, sauntering along to see what I was up to. He stopped in front of me and leaned over the fence wire. Zap! He stumbled back, almost sat down, wheeled to the left and trotted all the way back down the fence line, took the turn to the right and disappeared from sight. His trot was not a floaty thing to watch but a ground shaking draft horse thing. Now he’s giving the fence the respect it deserves. We’re good and he still follows me around but won’t touch the fence let alone lean over it. Three more fence chargers to go and the ranch will be fully wired again.

He knows when you're confident, And he always knows when you have carrots.

My desktop has been at the repair shop for almost two weeks and I just got home with it and turned it on and this is the first place I came.
