Three years under our belt and this year went much better. He chilled out at the trailer, walked (ok, power walked but still...) happily down the trails, and was calmer and more confident in general. When the other horses trotted up behind him he didn't tense up, go sideways, or take off. Was willing to trot slooooooooowly so the horses behind could keep up. In this picture he is standing still, which is usually something worth taking a picture of, but was more the norm this trip.
Note lack of white ring around eye. He's pretty skinny from 3 weeks of living in a group pasture at the Ranch where I work. Where he was very bad. Back home now snarfing up the calories.
The ground is really rocky so the pens are made out of trees in an A-frame formation.
