Last night's training went great. We didn't do anything different, just touched on the basics: leading, picking up hooves, grooming, tieing. I enlisted the help of my mom and dad because I thought the babies would like a change of scenery. I'm sure that the round pen is starting to get old and boring. We all went for a joy walk down our driveway. It was a totally new experience for all three. I had Mia, my dad had Halona & mom took Traveller(she calls him her baby). My dad was even able to get Halona to trot a little. All three did fantastic, heads held high taking in the newness of the experience. We went about half way down our drive(it's half a mile long) and turned around and headed home. I think we might start making these little excursions a part of our daily workout; after all, my parents have 120 acres for us to explore. Maybe next time, we will head down to the tank and see how they like the water.
