My mom was there and worked Ember on the line while I warmed up Roscoe. Roscoe decided that working in his turn out meant he could be lazy. I walked up to a tree and broke a branch off to be my whip. That was enough visual to get him working. Then the fun part came when mom brought Ember over.
|"I am thinking evil thoughts"|
Ember wanted to suck back so he could bite or jump on Roscoe. Roscoe wanted to stop and put Ember in his place. I had to keep Ember up by my leg and tell Roscoe to let me do the managing. Roscoe still was sticky especially when Ember bumped against us. Eventually, they worked out the walk.
|Pardon his mud|
|Roscoe says "if I have to..."|
|The big boy|
|No to downhill|
Afterward, I let Roscoe move around without Ember. I think he was not happy his time was shared. Plus this was the first time he was on the other side of ponying. The last time he was ponied by DaVinci who he tried to jump on. Like father, like son.
They shared a haybag later, so I guess it was not to terrible to work together. Ember did enact all the evil thoughts I blocked during the ride on Roscoe when they were free. Luckily Roscoe is totally used to it by now.
