This week we have met some great people as always on the tour. It has been really sunny so the cooling water and mud has been a hit! I had time to work with my project horse Archie too, on the way to the mud bath i had him touch his nose on anything he found scary, he got a treat as soon as he did it. This horse would jump through fire hoops for treats, so once he understood the game he was all over it. So rewarding to see him working out what i wanted and offering to do it, then turning his head to get his treat!! I love my horse!
It is all change in the herd dynamics at the moment. All our horses are not kept in stables, but loose together as nature intended, so there is always a very definite pecking order, but recently we moved Mr V (who has always been the leader) to our Beach Tour location (check out the website for more details) , now all the other horses are figuring out who is going to be boss. We have two contenders for the post Centenario and Moro. Both want it and neither will back down. Number 3 Shera is a floozy and will slot in with who ever wins, the rest are just hanging back till the dust settles! It is so fun to sit and watch a herd in action. One look from the boss will keep all 14 in place! I have tried this with Chris but it doesnt seem to work!!! : )
The photos below are Centenario and Moro! Hows your money on for the new Godfather???
