Happy 1st day of spring!
A couple weeks ago I got a cart for Dakota(pic on Dakotas page). He was very scared of it so I have just been getting him used to it. I bought 2 10 foot poles to hook to him on either side to help him get the feel of the shafts. He did really well with those. I have been trying to get him used to all the rattling of the cart by pulling it beside him and a couple days ago I started pulling it behind him. Its kind of hard to pull the cart and drive him at the same time but we managed. He used to not let me bring the cart up behind him but now he stands still and lets me pull the shafts up on either side of him. Yesterday for the first time I pulled it up behind him but didn't hook it up and I had my sister lead him forward while I pulled it. He was a little nervous but he did ok so in a few days I may try hooking it up to him and having him pull it. He has come a long way from being completely terrified of it. I haven't been doing much with Misty and Sierra lately because their hooves really need to be trimmed. The farrier is scheduled to come Saturday. Now that its warmer I ride Cherokee almost every day and he has been doing really well. Cheyenne pretty much just gets brushed and pampered and she loves it. I do some light ground work with her about once a week. I'm planning to train her to pony so I can maybe take her along when I ride Cherokee. Left a vote.
