Picked up Remington this morning to deliver him to his foster home.  We were all prepared with corral panels to "funnel" him into the trailer.  Got all set up, went in the round pen with him, & he headed for the trailer & hopped right in.  They never cease to amaze me.  Now we are wondering if he would have went in without the corral panels, guess we'll never know.  This is a picture of Honcho trying to get John to quit talking & pay attention to him. Honcho loves to be messed with & will work to get your attention.  He has always been Mr. Personality Plus. 

The trip was uneventful, we kept Georgette apprised of when would we get there, & she was waiting for us. He didn't even poo or pee in the trailer, I think that is a first.  They usually do one or the other before the trailer has moved.  
Remington has a large area probably 1/4 acre or more.  We opened the trailer, he hopped out & immediately started investigating.  Georgette & I were sitting under a nice big shelter, that's her in the left corner, & tried to get him to come to us for a ginger snap, but he was more interested in checking everything out.  He is pretty independent, although he really liked the ginger snaps I gave him this morning when we were loading him. 

There are no animals with him, Georgette lives about 3 or 4 houses away, so he'll be able to hear them but not see them.  She has a bicycle & plans on riding over 3 or 4 times a day to "mess" with him.  

After we got him settled in, we went over to her house to visit with Sugar & Jacque.  We hadn't seen them in over 2 years, & I wouldn't have recognized Sugar, she has lost her baby coat & is much darker than she was although she still has her pretty blaze.
They couldn't understand why we were standing so far away when we could have been petting, & seemed to think sticking their heads thru the panels would make it happen.
