Hugo arrived in February 2017 and he's been growing ever since! He was born in May 2014, bred locally. He has a great aptitude for learning and is quite the clown.

Hugo's learning continues
Hugo has a fairly quiet week last week so we've made up for it this week with some new learning.

He also figured out how to yield his hindquarters in very short time, which I am pleased about. This is because sometimes when he doesn't understand, he turns his hindquarters to me so obviously I actually want him to be facing the other way. He is very good natured though and usually figures out that he needs to turn around with just a little feel down the halter. Here's his circling video:
