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.
