Yeah Bo !

Bo is a Mustang gathered earlier this year that I've gentled and am doing ground work with. I've recently submitted a few posts about a disability not allowing me enforce the rules and maintain his respect. Yesterday he was turned out into a 1 acre pasture for a few hours. When I went to halter him he was at the end of the acre. I walked up to him, gave him a few strokes and decided to experiment and not halter him this time. I said "Come on Bo", slaping my hip to get his attention and walked away. It was such a pleasant surprise to look back and see he was coming right along with me! He followed for the length of this pasture and stopped when I did to get his halter on. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but with recent experiences, this really put a smile on my face. Way to go, Bo [Wink]

Great job! Good to see Bo has started to hook onto you. Isn't it a great feeling when they do this, like they just want to be with you? Sounds like he is starting to view you as a leader. Keep it up!
