Spike Gets Comfortable

December 9, 2014

Just a little update on the new guy, Spike.  Last night I got home from work with just a little time before dark. Spike came right up to be in the field, and brought him out to be groomed up.  He loved every moment of it.  We shared a few apples, and I fitted my saddle to him.  I even lunged him very briefly as the light faded.  Then I put a light sheet on him for turn out since it was about to start snowing and icing.

He is extremely friendly and just hams up on attention.  I probably will not make it home from work in time to get in any time with him tonight, but tomorrow I hope to be able to get in a ride.

This is him just before the grooming started.

He was eager for attention and marched right over.
