I removed some of green corral panels to open up Timber’s area a bit. I wanted to see if I could still catch him as well in a bigger area. He did great. We then did a “normal” training session continuing to work on and improve communication, desensitizing, etc. After that I took him into the much larger paddock area where my other horses feed and are kept at night. This was yet another opportunity for me to see if I can catch him when he’s in a larger area and has more room to run from me if he chooses. This paddock also has an electric fence on one side. My 40 acres is fenced with electric fence and barbless wire. Before I can turn him out into the larger pasture Timber needs to “discover” and respect the electric fence so I don’t have to worry about him getting out. The smaller, controlled paddock environment is a perfect way to introduce him to this and see how he reacts. You have to watch the video to see how he did.
