Arobridge Maxwell is coming along very nicely.
He is a charismatic, zippy little left brain extrovert.
He loves to play and loves riding too - he is very inquisitive when out and about.
Today we were revisiting the basic 7 games, and a LOT of the "Friendly game" and then "sideways". He is a very sensible little chap.
His sidestepping online was put to good use when we went to open the gate. The realisation that we had just been practising this was very apparent when you could see the penny drop- "Oh I already know this" look on his face.
We then went with Gaylene and Sparky down to the stream for a paddle, and then back across the bridge....Going down to the waterhole can be quite claustrophobic for some horses, but he was a little star and did the "Squeeze game" through the 2 crossings by the waterhole. He took it all in his stride.
Float loading with Maxwell is a real hoot- we park the float between two gates so there is room around the float but he can't just run off, and when Cheryl Holland came to give us a hand- he walked around the car and the float before going on. He has continued to do this..He goes on - on his own, but he always walks right around the car and float before walking on... What a character he is.
