July 14, 2009

Tuff finally figures out that Kirstin wants all 4 hooves on the little bridge. These guys are incredible once they figure out what you are asking for, they want to do it over and over again. Kirstin would head for the bridge and Tuff would go right on.

Taking a little break. These 2 make a wonderful pair. Tuff trust Kirstin and she can do just about anything with him.

This just proves how much Tuff trusts Kirstin. She was actually picking his front hoof when Tuff spotted a blade of grass and wanted it very badly. Kirstin wasn't giving the hoof up and Tuff was determined to get that 1 blade of grass, so he knelt down on both knees, ate his grass as Kirstin continued to pick his hoof. She finished and stood up to go to the other side, so he decided that he also should stand up.
Tuff gets to spend some quality time in the trailer. Kirstin tied him in the trailer for about 20 minutes. This guy likes to face backward, that's the same position he travelled when we picked him up in Pauls Valley.

Out he goes. He has become a pro at backing out of the trailer. That is something that Kirstin never accomplished with the 3 yearlings that she trained last year.
