Once he got it, I gave us both a break going back out in the field. We went over the wishing well at a leap! I guess he saw something (aka the cut grass laying on the ground) and decided it was scary. I made him do it again, and he was quiet. I am very lucky to have a horse that will try anything - and keep going in the event something deathly (nothing) scares him. We moved to a cross rail and cantered off of the jumps into the tall grass.
When I walked back to the barn, I made Spyder walk up the "bank" since he can never get his feet right, but he did well. Finally, he's watching where he goes! He didn't want to move in the stall so I got to brush him down and pick his feet without trouble. I think the heat had something to do with it! The tall grass gave his socks some grass stains, but I think the rain today will help those out. Poor guy is probably freezing today - it went from 85 to 56! :( I took a picture of his straggling "fly-aways" that he's got on his body. Hopefully they are helping him keep warmer today!
Before putting him back, I hosed him off and he just stood there like he was so thankful to get wet. He gets what the hose is now and kept reaching towards it! He will drink from it, but he's still figuring out the best way to get water from the hose...one step closer to a new trick.
