This past week, Mom and Bill came down to work with Jay and Copper. Skeeter just got yelled at for being "helpful", since it was Copper's training day.
First, they made some progress with Copper and the trailer. Instead of flat-out refusing like he's done in the past, Jay managed to get two feet in without a fight.
After they "loaded" into the trailer, it was time to start with the getting people on his back thing. Copper's not big on having people be taller than him, so we've taken to standing on the black tub here and there while petting him.
On this day, though, he got the full Dead Indian treatment, first will Bill and then with Jay.
|He's thinking about it. Strange, but not bad.|
You should have seen how Jay lit up when he was telling me about this. It's such a huge step for both of them. In no time, he'll be sitting astride.
