Worked BlackJack hard today. He was in the field and wouldn't come to me. Nor would he let me walk up to him. I supposed I could have got a handfull of grain or horse cookies. But that isn't the way I wanted to do it. He is supposed to come to me when I call him. So instead he got to run round and round our small field while I got to walk behind him until he was tired enough to stop and let me put a halter on him. Then I lunged him which is what I had wanted to do to start with. By the time I finished he was sweating hard. So I had to work hard to bush and dry him with a towel until he was dry. At least he let me clean his hooves with fussing like he usually does.
