March 6th.
Eddie and I played in the round pen today! He did fantastic!
We started with some fun stick to me and he was awesome. We did walk, trot, stop, backup transitions and he did them flawlessly.
But he did keep wanting to graze by the north side of the round pen. So I would make it hard for him to. ;) When he went to it, I would ask him to come to me, and if he didn't then I would ask him to do a circle and come back to me. After the 4th time he wanted to stay with me, and stop walking in circles!
Sideways was next. I asked him to sideways over barrels, towards and away and then sideways to other barrels and sideways back towards me. :) He did really good, everything was light and he was really responsive. Eddie and I also did some spanish walking and he was having fun with that! I also asked him to jump the barrels and do a figure 8 around them. He did three and lost interest. But I don't blame him, it's boring for him and for me!
We also did some close circling game at the trot. I had to turn with him, but he still did it really well!
I hopped on for a little bit after that. I let him graze for a while and we watched Diesel trot around in the pasture. Diesel is such a silly guy!

Plus! This is exciting! I ordered a Baretek Western Pad. It's like a saddle, but it's a bareback pad. Yippee! I'm excited!!
It should be here in 2 weeks. Hooray!

Proverbs 6:20-23
20 My son, keep your father’s command,
      And do not forsake the law of your mother.
       21 Bind them continually upon your heart;
      Tie them around your neck.
       22 When you roam, they[b] will lead you;
      When you sleep, they will keep you;
when you awake, they will speak with you.
       23 For the commandment
is a lamp,
      And the law a light;
      Reproofs of instruction
are the way of life,
