Wow, what a classy horse. He has an A++ personality. He was good yesterday considering all he’d been through the previous 24 hours, but today I got to see his real personality. I got to the barn and he was the only one in, the others were turned out before I got there, I had asked them to leave him in for me. He was not upset in the least, happy to see me, but not concerned with the others being turned out. I wasn’t sure if he knew how to play the crosstie game so I brought him in the aisle with just his halter and lead rope (no chain). He stood like a perfect gentleman; I brushed him really good and inspected all his legs, feet, mane, tail etc. He just stood there. And to top it off, he thought I needed his assistance getting the dewormer out of the package and thought he should work on that after he took it from my box. What a sweetie, I appreciate a little humor. Lastly, on the way to his paddock we had to go through a very large puddle, he didn’t hesitate at all just walked right through it and to the gate. I’m so pleased with everything, what a good boy!
