Justin vs armor and horse-eating manhole covers

Finally got the pics and videos from Justin's rides this weekend.

First up, a delightful video of how truly terrified he is of armor.



And in case you were wondering, yes, manhole covers do eat horses.

 Radar ears spot dangerous manhole cover, twelve o'clock.

 Evasive action! EVASIVE ACTION!!!

 Whew! Manhole cover safely avoided. That was close!

Several manhole covers later (where hubby learned not to stare at the manhole cover, and to nudge Justin forward at the slightest hesitation), we have a slightly different outcome.

 Manhole cover, you say? Over there?

 Oh hm, I could dodge...

Nah, never mind, that would take to much energy. I'll just (STOMP!) walk on over it, I guess. 

Goofy, but trainable. He's growing on us... :)

    1. For all his size, he definitely is a cutie. As for a name... well, we're throwing around a few ideas. We'll let you know!

  4. It looks like he has a great mind... he might be afraid, but he can be convinced. And he's already good with the armor! Oh, and he's still super cute. :)

    1. I think it's less that he's truly afraid of something and more "oh, I haven't seen that before!" He's definitely not spin-and-bolt afraid of anything. Hopefully with more miles his reaction to just about everything will be "meh"... but we'll see!

  5. Ozzy would like to assure everyone that storm drains and manhole covers do in fact devour horses. It's true.

    1. I believe that Ozzy and Justin may be communing about the dangers of manhole covers. I'm not sure that Justin has noticed storm drains yet, though!
