Look! One of them dancin' hosses!

WaaaaaaaaaHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Can you hear us in Idaho?

During today's thunderstorms, we confined Nate to his stall to keep his diapered foot dry. This was completely unacceptable to His Highness. As soon as the puddles dried, Nate was given his freedom. He pushed the door open and marched out, tossing his head indignantly.

Then......

Then.........Nathan collected himself into an absolutely gorgeous canter, flexed at the poll, feet placed just so, and going in a straight line. And he did it twice! Cantered out. Walked back. Threw his head at me and cantered out again. It was breathtaking.

OK, in a ring, next to a fit horse in regular training, maybe not so much. But performed by a horse who, less than two months ago, had to lean against a wall to remain upright, it was truly beautiful.
