The farrier joined us and both husband and wife told me how much they loved Lance, going on and on about how smart and personable and handsome he is. The farrier, recognizing the need for boundaries and training in a young horse who had had too little of either, had actually worked on teaching Lance to fetch and carry! Hmmm, is that why he always has to have something in his mouth, or is that just capitalizing on a tendency he already has?

(I sure wish I could figure out how to customize my blog layout to expand into all that white space on the left so my photos could be bigger! I've tried without success....)
After Lance 'expressed' himself on the lunge line, he was very good under saddle. I'm tickled pink with the progress we've both made since his first competitive outing; I am really looking forward to my mouthy mustang's next showing this Sunday!
