Yesterday, I played with both Scout and Eddie!
First Eddie and I went in the round pen and did some more spanish walk, jumping, circling game and we're starting something new! Have you ever seen this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow2yDdRK_Zc If not, watch it!!!! Anyway, we played with the thing Mikey does with Red Sun when they are doing the close circling game. Spin and change of direction! Eddie is catching on, but it's going to take a lot of practice! I thought it would be a cool thing to learn. Where I spin the opposite direction that Eddie is circling and then when I arrive on the other side with my stick he changes direction! Where he does it in the video is at 1:19 seconds. So if you want to skip to that part - it's a long video! So after I did that with Eddie I put him back and because Scout was having a fit I went and brought him into the round pen.
He had so much energy! So we played with 'good' circles. It took him about 4 or 5 bad circles, then he would mantain gait, direction, and he was connected. So we did that both ways and went to the figure eight. We played with me breathing in and out and he would come in/go out. It went really well and the whole time I was asking him politely, but firmly not to bite me. He did at the beginning of the session, but we nipped-it-in-the-bud after that. ;) What a funny duck! Scout really needs some more things to do, because my sister is somewhat busy with college, I'm going to take on playing with him on afternoons that she's not here. So hopefully we won't need to do any more 'fixing' sessions.
Now on to today!!
Lea & Eddie
He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.
