I sat on the mounting block in the round pen, and he came over, put his head down for a scratch, then pretty much put his head in my lap.

Cortableau is doing great! He’s met everyone over the fence, and I put our little Appy mare in with him for a while. He kicked out but didn’t make contact, and she loves everyone, so she didn’t care. I put him in one of the pastures yesterday, and he enjoyed the grass while no one got excited about anything. Then I worked with him a little in the round pen; he seems to be moving fine. He catches on very quickly and is so calm. He is also extremely polite – walks with you nicely, waits while you put his food down, etc. I sat on the mounting block in the round pen, and he came over, put his head down for a scratch, then pretty much put his head in my lap. He stood there by me for about an hour while I was on the phone with Leslie. Another phenomenal Bits&Bytes horse!

Take care,
Laura
