Just wanted to drop you all a line and let you know how Frank is doing.
Supper time came along, and Frank let me catch him without any problems. Friday I didn't have time to work him in the round pen and I've been a bit worried about his soreness after he was trimmed. Stephanie and I have discussed this and we've decided to move on with his training. Time came to get Frank and that's when the problems started. He absolutely would not let me catch him. In fact, he went over the neighbor's fence. Fortunately for him he only suffered minor scrapes. Sometimes it's hard to remember, but good can come from even the worst situation. After almost an hour and a half, Frank let me catch him. That was because I worked him that whole time, instead of taking a short cut.
Well, to get everybody up to speed, I left MHR Monday around 4:30pm. The drive home went without incident. That's a good thing. We arrived home pretty late, and by the time we got the horses unloaded and cared for, it was around midnight. Tuesday was just a day to recuperate. On Wednesday, I had a short round pen session with Frank and he actually did quite well. I followed that up on Thursday by turning him out in my roping arena. That way he could join up with my other horses over a fence and I could see how he handled cattle. He is quite cowie, which is a prerequisite for horses on my property.
