These last couple weeks Tommy and me have been doing a lot better, which is great, but he's been quite flat the last couple weeks. He's gained a lot of weight back since we moved him out of the same pen as Edgar, so at least we don't have to worry about that when winter hits.
He seems so much happier now that he's in a new pen. When we first got him last December/January, he would come running up to anyone that opened the gate. Once he got put in with Edgar, he wasn't as keen, however he's back to his old self and coming over.
We had a rail down on our Thursday lesson which is unusual, but it was an 18" jump, so he really had no respect for it. Nor do I for that matter, epically when it's a legit part of a coarse. But we did our best and our last round was amazing. We did two previous rounds, and the first one I got left behind at the first jump in the diagonal line, but we both recovered well for the rest of course. The second, I had expected him to jump the first part of the line in a similar fashion, so I got ahead of him, but again, we had a good recovery and finished well.
