A more solid feeling

I brought him in and groomed him.  He stood beautifully in the cross ties and accepted peppermints with grace.  

We had a brief lunging warmup, in which he was dang near perfect, then worked in the arena at all gaits.  I don’t know what to say about him, other than that he is just feeling more solid, a lovely thing.  After arena work we walked down and trotted and cantered back up the hill.

Archie takes some time to smell the tiger lilies.

Then he got a walk out and a rinse and some more peppermints.
