|You. You are my human.|
Here's a run-down (with pics) of what Copper has learned in less than two months:
~ That his human isn't so bad.
|Oh, that scratch thing feels good.|
~ How to knock down his 6' rail on his gentling pen (the day after he came home!)
|Doin' good work, Dad.|
|I do not think I like this.|
~ But spa day is kind of nice.
~ Getting caught and haltered is okay, even if it's crazy Grandpa doing it.
|I am a good boy.|
|I'll come with you because I am a good boy, but it is under protest.|
|Hi Dad. I like it out here.|
|I helped, Dad. Now you can find everything.|
~ Grandma's braids are nice and keep his hair from tangling.
|No more dreadlocks|
|I make this look gooooood.|
~ That even though being dragged around by the face is no fun, if he actively participates, he gets to go on a walkabout in the real world.
|This is the people barn?|
|This is nice, Dad.|
|Food grows out of the ground?!|
|I do not think so Grandpa Beel|
|That wasn't so bad|
|I'll just take a nap.|
|So. I touch that thing, hear a click and get a treat? Cool.|
It might not seem like a lot when compared to events like the Mustang Makeover, where the trainers only have 100 days to train up a horse, but for part-time "training" they've both come a long way and are already great horses. We've got years and years with these two, there's no need to rush them, though it's hard not to feel rushed when we look and see how fast other mustang owners are able to move.
