Tolo had a great day today! It was so nice out. I came home during a break in class and took his blanket off and gave him a good brushing before taking out him to graze a little. He really enjoyed the attention and just stood with his lead rope over the fence (not tied) while I groomed him. He desperately need a bath and will get one tomorrow if the weather is nice. I also started working on his mane. It is a mess! I chopped some off and started pulling. It will be a long process but hopefully I will get it under control. I have been really happy to see how sensible he has been about me working on his blind side. When I went to put his blanket back on him tonight he walked right up to his gate waiting me. I took his blanket it and put it over his head and everything without haltering him and without him moving away from me! All those treats he has been getting from me have been paying off :) I can also walk away from his blind side and walk back to it and touch him without him reacting. Im excited to clean him up more tomorrow! Pictures promised!
