First Trot outside 2/4/10
What a wonderful week for Cha'Cote. He has been able to graze and move about all but one day this week. He has been stellar. We are now playing outside with the fig 8, circle, sideways and his first trot stick to me from behind. The tape is unedited, filmed by my 11yo son Jason. What a trooper he is. You can't see it in the video, but it was starting to rain and the wind was really picking up. Before filming began, Cha'Cote helped me dump his wheel barrel, and at one point took a few trot steps, so I figured I would actually TRY by asking him to trot. In the video are my first 3 attemps where he did NOT trot, and then three times where he did. He was very calm the whole time and had a nice cadence to his trot. Can't wait to see what we come up with this weekend. What ever it is, you will surely be the first to know!
