Spring time already
I had to leave Garbo while I went to get my camera memory stick and this is what happened when I got back.
Anyway - we didn't see the lambs but Garbo was very keen to investigate the road setting off at a fast walk.
The next door dog came running over to the fenceline at one stage and frightened Garbo - he lept forward and spun round on the end of the 22, I led him towards me (and the dog) and to the grass until the dog buggered off - I gave it the evil eye.
We worked on "I am in charge of which grass you eat and when becaise I know where the good stuff is" and "when I walk you walk"...
Back in the property I groomed the big boys and then stuck the 45ft line of Garbo since the paddocks were drier and off we went for a play - just did driving from zone 3 and 5, some sideways (when I drive from zone 5 and the rope touches his side he goes sideways)... and some circle on the end of the 45 at walk, a change of direction and a draw, and that was about it. He was great. Looking forward to trying trot when the paddocks are a bit drier - maybe the weekend.
