This is Paladin with his new mom, being watched by his new friends, Mr. Hershey the donkey & Comet the horse. They were very excited to see Paladin, him.......not so much. I think he was rather overwhelmed by everything going on.
I had worked with halter & leading, but only in his pen. There was no way for us to unload him directly into his pen, so it was time to see if he would lead. I put a halter on him, & 2 lead ropes. The idea being 2 people could hold him back if he bolted.............I don't think so.........!!! Fortunately we didn't have to find out. Linda & John manned the ropes & I went in front with clicker & animal crackers. He was hesitant, but willing & it didn't take too long to get him where he needed to be. What a good boy he is & hopefully Linda will have more time to work with him. He's like a piece of clay & more than willing to meet you half way. Hanna & Quilla will miss him, they were his play buddies.
We will go to Dos Cabazos tomorrow to pick up Chico & his mom Lupe. I'll have to call the vet Monday & make an appointment for his "brain" surgery "i.e." gelding.
