Then we ventured out on the trail for a short ride and encountered some other de-spooking tools....barking dog who saw us coming and raced to the end of it's yard (stopped there-good dog, good Stormy) Appaloosa stallion who also noted us and trotted to the fence to nicker and make his presence known (walk on Stormy-good boy) Oh, look Mrs. Idecker has done wash today and has hung several flapping sheets on her clothesline....can you hear them snap in the wind Storm? (yup! stayed calm-good boy) Moving on, look Storm, our neighbors received a package from the post office and it is swinging in a bag attached to their mailbox. Should we take a closer look (not a flinch-good boy)
After all that, we headed back towards home and loped in the open field. We ended our ride with performing some figure 8's around some cones at a trot and then walking over the tarp (with me mounted) a few times. Storm was perfect!
