With the three day weekend I let the crew enjoy being loose in the yard.  Trooper of course had a ball.  He stopped by the sliding door for a short nap.

Then he looks through the screen door for a treat.

Once the screen door was open he stretched his long neck inside.  "Hmm, carpet!".

Then he started up the stairs to come in and make himself at home.  That's when I closed the door.  The havoc he would have created indoors would be beyond belief.

I have a carport that I used to store hay in as well as a bunch of junk.  Sunday I found him inside searching for whatever is edible.,

Monday I was inside my 6x8 metal shed, turned to the right getting something out of my tool box when suddenly I'm not alone.  Trooper came in and inspected the shed.  Later as I was in the tack room, yep, you guessed it.  I had company again as he just waltzed inside and sniffed around.  Later as Pam was washing buckets and feeders she found a helper.

Later this afternoon I heard "Thump, Thump".  it couldn't be but it was.  he was climbing the front steps in an attempt to get onto the front porch where the carrot bag is sitting next to the front door.  It's back to the pasture for you boy and I'll make sure all gates are chained as he can open the unchained ones at will. I get bored with boring horses and no one in the crew are boring, especially Trooper.  He's a lot of fun and brightens my day.

Oh yea, more than you know. I enjoy having them involved in whatever I’m doing but Trooper has shown me the value of a horse free zone. I am going to fence off part of the yard so I can actually have lawn furniture and decorations and things that won’t be destroyed as he comes out and plays with everything. LOL

LOL hey he spent his formative first week in the house as a newborn.

 

Did you know I had him sleep in the bed with me his first night.  I used to have a photo of him on my bed with a stuffed animal next to him but lost it in the fire. 

 

He knows how to sit on the couch and he likes watching Television

I forward these stories to Troopers friends at the ranch. We LOVE reading about him and love seeing the photos.

I did know about his beginnings, the couch, and watching jeopardy, but I didn’t know about his first night. Wanting to come into the house wasn’t much of a surprise but climbing the steps was. I need to build sturdier steps. LOL I’ve found it takes between a year and two years before they really decide to let their full personality shine and truly feel at home. I’m glad he has a following and you share his adventures with them.

Makes total sense that he'd feel at home in the house!
