The sad thing is that he was so good while I was groomimg him - he actually fell asleep while I was brushing his face.
He let me open the gate, he lined up nicely with Junior and Toni ... yet still managed to try to run away a couple of times.
The first I would agree was a bit of a shock ... we turned a sharp corner and ended up with an orange carroier bag blowing down the road towards us. Yes ...a s hock for us all, so a antural reaction, in some ways, from him.
But then he did his classic of stopping when he saw people walking towards him ... How dare they walk on his road, it should not be permitted!
Still, once we had got past them, we headed on and down the bridle path, with a short canter - that he was again beautifully behaved for.
So, all in all, it is so annoying when he does something silly! However I suppose it just proves the old phrase -
"Boys will be boys!"
