River is all moved in to his new home. He and The Red Mare trailered over Sunday afternoon.
He's settled in quite well:
Yesterday I decided to longe him in the indoor. I have no idea if he's ever been in an indoor before, and I had no particular desire to discover that he's afraid of them while riding him. So longeing seemed to be a rather sensible decision.
We, ah, didn't get much accomplished.
This happened every single time he passed by the mirror. He was absolutely fascinated by the good-lookin' horse in the mirror.
On the bright side, he was too intrigued by the mysterious horse to spook or act up. It was a lot of work to get him to move, though. Tomorrow morning I'll have to stop by the feed store to see if they have a pink longe whip.
