These have been great for him. Did you know he could tie to the trailer?? Because I didn't! And he was a total champ for our first foray to Assunpink. I had never been there before myself but it's a popular spot for riders in the NJ area. The trails are well maintained and there's plenty of open space. Runkle got to hang out with his best buddy Klein.
He also somehow managed to fall off the trailer ramp because he was trying to back up and look at the same time. This is why we ship in boots, Runkle.
I was kind of surprised how well behaved he was. A few days before I had done a lap of the perimeter at home and he was a wild animal - doing little baby rears and galloping sideways. Of course we go off the property to a strange place with 30mph winds and he was a perfect angel.
The next week I took him back to Flora Lea for cross country schooling. Unfortunately (fortunately?) he's starting to figure out his job and enjoy it. I actually started asking him some little baby questions. He was honest as hell but got a little gallopy towards the end.
He also got hind shoes and all four tapped for studs. My little baby, growing up.
