Another great day on the trail with Gem. We made it our farthest yet. He was was safe and sane. He didn't do anything silly. I took my time with him. His feet were getting quite stuck as we hit his threshold and I honored that by turning him or backing him to move his feet again. Interestingly, he's happy to go south on the trail (also away from the trailer) but he doesn't want to go north (the way we normally go).
Regardless, we'll keep going! I was thinking today as I rode that it's been months since he offered a buck. Maybe that's all behind us. He's doing great.
