Today was good!!Valero was agitated with lunging today and popped out at the whip...not at me.It's all good though i stopped lunging him when he stopped kicking!(also my mom worked him when she got home)Then I worked on his feet,he was still annoyed from lunging so he tryed to pull his back feet away from me.His front feet were PERFECT!I set up a playpen consisting of...

Valero did great today!He is now leading without me barely having to put any pressure on the halter!We need to work on stopping though...I picked up all four of his feet and took off his halter and rehaltered him!He was rubbed by the blue tarp all over and i have pics!Tons of people came out to meet him today!And i got out with him as much as possible but it was 102 degrees today!The poor guy was sweating just stading there!!!I found out my horse likes beer!hehe!My neighbor came over and let him sniff it!My horses solution to annoying things is not to kick,or to rear but to eat it!!!I came up today ad he had a pool noodle in his mouth and was flinging it around;then he took a big bite outta it!!!But i made him spit it out!So i can't leave things in his pen!Valero met the ball today!Just a lil freaked out about that but he eventually adjusted to it!Tomorrow's challenge:Lunging!Duh duh duh!(dramatic music! :D)This is going to be a challenge since he isn't scared of anything!!!Thats kinda good i guess?

I love my lil guy!!! Steen's Valero! He is really starting to trust me! By the end of this week i am hoping to be able to take off his halter and rehalter him. Also i am hoping i am able to pick up his feet!!! Hopefully the rain will hold off tomorrow so i can work with him some more!!
