Get a Load of This

I love my trailer. I love being able to take the boys to other places to ride and we have many great open space trails within 30 minutes of us as well as indoor arenas and equestrian parks. I don't love that Doc is undependable when it comes to loading. He's getting better, but we still need to do some circles and 'move your feet' before he decides to get on and stay on. Last week I was able to load and unload both Doc and Pippin all by myself. That felt great. Then, when we were ready to go home, I had trouble with Doc again. I had to resort to the 'flapping the scary hat on the butt' routine.

OK. I'm guilty. 
 My patience jar was empty.

I think I'm going to take my computer down to the barn to share this video with Doc.
So, what do you think the chances of this working might be? OK. Never mind. Don't answer that...I know. Slim to none!


  1. Oh wow o wow ~ I can't imagine how long that took and I definitely do not have that sort of patients when it comes to trailer loading / training.

  2. Amazing video. Amazing what can be accomplished. I liked the music too...and that adorable pony grazing grazing obliviously.

  3. sometimes I SWEAR our horses know when we start with our patience jar half empty because that's often when they decide to make things last longer!
