This is re-capping, this past Tuesday, April 5th.
Sunny, cool but nice and wiiiindy
Some windy days, Laz is totally at ease but this past Tuesday it seemed the whole barn wanted to be on alert and test their flight skills.
Ok with me..we know how to handle it via the ground NO problem
Also, my Mom came back with my Husband and I for the week so thanks for her support of hanging at the barn with me and taking videos/pictures! xo
Mr. Spookerson and Mrs Pale....eck
Trying to groom him (he literally cakes himself in ear tip to tail in mud daily)
"I see something!! Lions are out is the rumor!"
He would go from highly on alert, to trying to enjoy his grooming, to anxious...he was a mental mess lol
I had to remind certain manners, correct certain behaviors but overall he was ok. My poor Mom was worried when he blew a few huge spooks and ran off and stopped. Not his typical behavior but that was ok, we just re-set and started over.
"Don't bruzhs my hairssss, I has to runs Mom!"
Once he calmed down a bit, I rewarded with carrot stretches
Here are videos that re-cap the day
Letting him run his steam off before I could finish the grooming I had started
Working on our "COME" command from being off the lead
Our ground pole trot work.
I love ground poles for him to build up his muscle balance
Another bonus and growth for Laz!
Even though he started out spooky and motors blazing, once he got out his sillies and I put him lead back on him, he settled right in and gave no issues and went right to work.
It's a long way from where we were a year ago...another reason this blog has proven to be so great.
It's nice to be able to look back and compare our progress.
We are lucky
