Day 2

His name is Santana! He is a very good boy. I worked with him for about 45 minutes, then went and got Dino. I put Dino in his pen and then put the saddle on Dino. This didn't even phase him. Then I got on Dino and ponied him around his pen. Everything I did to him he took right in stride. I then saddled him and he didn't even care. He doesn't spook at things that other wild horses would. It is Kind of amazing to us. I led him out side of his pen and over to the horse trailer. I loaded Dino, but he wasn't interested in loading and I didn't want to push it. What you see in the video is just him. Calm, cool and collected.
Stay tuned......

That is amazing to have him saddled and tied on the second day. Amazing!! He looks so alert, but not scared. Can't wait to see what you do next.

I saw you get tempted to put your foot in that stirrup Kevin! Did you? This is almost cheating he's so easy. I'm really happy for you both!
