Krypt wasn't too sure about the mysterious thing on his back. Putting it on wasn't a big problem, but moving with it on was. He froze after his first step. Almost as if to say whoa, what's that on my back and is it going to eat me. Kirstin started lunging him and for the first time ever, I saw Krypt lose it. He totaly freaked. But Kirstin has become so confident in handling horses that she took it all in stride, kept a hold of him and they eventually worked it through together.
It helps that Krypt trusts Kirstin completely. He knows that she would never ask something of him that would hurt him.
After about 5 minutes of Krypt not being to sure of his blanket, he now has no problems with the extra layer of warmth. Kirstin is riding him around with just the halter and lead rope. It is so cool to watch these 2. Krypt is so responsive to her and he loves to be ridden.
Krypt says that he loves his new winter coat and says hi to everyone(especially Matt!)
