The time has come for Thunder's younger cousin, Z Blue Lightening, aka Blue, to start his training. It actually started last spring but then got put on hold and he just kept eating. Last week he got saddled and bitted and played with a little. Today we saddled and played with stirrups and things that make noise and made him nervous. Then Blue got the bit and we worked with giving to the bit. Yup, someday he will be a grown up horse and he'll get to see his share of the trails too.
