So finally, by this morning, Astar walked right into the pen with NO hesitation for his breakfast. We were able to shut the gate behind him and let Muchkin in the yard to eat. This afternoon I went out and we took a nice stroll around the yard for about 15-20 minutes. I stopped periodically and gave him scratches, rubbed his ears, etc. I was even able to switch sides pretty easily…without much fuss.

Then my friend Kaite got here to drop off feed and he was even interested in her! Which is great because they’ve had some “disagreements” in the past and he hasn’t always liked her. At any rate, we moved about the yard talking about the lesson with you on Tuesday and why he was in the yard, etc. Astar pretty much stayed with us wherever we went. He even, at one point walked into the pen all by himself with no reason to really go in (wasn’t time for food).

We planned on riding and started getting out the tack and walking it over to Damien and Blue. Astar was following and watching the whole time. In fact at one point he startled himself with a container he was biting at (it made a crack noise) and he went trotting off. And before we knew it, I looked up and he was peering around the corner at us…still watching. He just couldn’t help himself… BOY WAS HE CURIOUS!

I had to run in the house so I asked Andy if he would come take some photos and try to capture Astar watching. Well… as soon as Andy came out, Astar was WAYYY more interested in him than us so Andy missed the shot.

BUT he did watch most of the time and there is one shot in my photos that shows him watching as we un-tack.

I am assuming since he’s super interested in being with us that the next step is to get a halter on him…. yes? So I am going to start working on that.
