Because of the wind we opted to take him into the barn which is a BIG STEEL building (in the background - this is a horse we sold with her new family whose permition I did not get so the blocked ids) that is a great weather protectant but is noisy as heck. The first problem came when we could not open the big sliding doors on the end because the wind had them pressed too tight to the barn to slide (two men could not budge them!). We then opted to walk Abner through a walk door but inside this door is a big stove/island we use as a work bench, electrical cords chains, boards, cats and other barn type stuff.
When the door was opened all this stuff started blowing around and Abner said "I DON"T THINK SO!" However, with just a bit of pressure and discussion he gave in and said "OK! Here I come on the fly!" and we were in.
Then he was head up, ears tight, eyes HUGE and jittery! Now for those who have not met Abner he is our handicap boy with a golden personality. He is solid (we trim his feet with a special disc on an electric grinder) and willing and quiet quiet quiet. So for him to have big eyes was a first!
I walked him around showed him the huge stack of hay, the different things of horsey interest and he settled enough to lower his head, relax his ears and chew - his eyes were still fairly big for him.
Once he settled we got down to the trim which only took about 5 minutes.
