Cha'Cote's first liberty circles in arena
Well my proudest moment to date! This is Cha'Cote's first time ever going any where besides from the wild to the BLM. From there to his last home, and from there to my home. He was a champ! Took some convincing to get him to let us shut the door on the trailer....but finally he did. Short 7 min drive to where my friend boards. We opened the door. He stuck his head out, and stood there. I was terrified he would rush out and bail on me. Nope! Such a good boy. Then he trusted me to lead him thru the barn. then we went into the arena. I showed him all the walls, played a teeny bit online, then went LIBERTY. I was shocked he went straight to circling me and not leaving, and then a great draw. Looked over my shoulder and my friend was gone. So I shared my excitement with a total stranger and asked her to watch. I was afraid it wouldn't happen again and wanted a witness to tell my friend. He did it again. 'bout 3 circles. So we chated a few min and my friend came back. i was hoopin and hollering, and started to show her. she grabbed her video camera, and he did it AGAIN! She started grooming after a couple of min and I thought she turned the camera off. I didn't know she was this sneaky, but she set it down and left it on. So this is me playing at liberty with Cha'cote for the first time. there a few more videos to come....sorry...so excited I am posting it ALL!
