I had the toboggan outside, all ready for him. I took him out wide to set him facing away from the barn. Even with the tarp right next to him in a new form and uncovered from the snow, Blu was a pro. He never showed concern for the straw being plopped on, either. He also did not mind the noise of the toboggan clunking into the barn. He did not worry about all the squeezing he had to do inside the barn, and he willingly backed out.
We pulled three loads. The first was 7 bales and most of them got lodged in the door (that did not bother him, either). We loaded them correctly the next times for a 5 bale load and a 2 bale load.
I was so impressed with how helpful Blu was, even though he’d been taken from his breakfast. It was fun.
