    Hooray for the bravery of Wizard! Be glad that you don’t ride him on my local stomping grounds, where we often ride through fully-operational timber harvest camps, complete with boom rigs and bulldozers! (photos and video here: http://haikufarm.blogspot.com/2010/02/in-which-we-have-lofty-goals.html )

    It sounds like he’s getting more confident, too. Wild turkeys make some of the wonkiest sounds. He earned an extra carrot for standing his ground, I think!

      Thanks! Yes, I was very happy with him- it felt good when he stood his ground.

      Wow, your horses must be really nice to take on the trail! It’s a good feeling when they have seen it all. The funny thing is, racehorses have seen a lot more than most pleasure horses, but I guess ten years off the track has been too long for Wizard :^)

    “In a fit of self-preservation, I dismounted…” Snicker. I have momentary fits of self-preservation too. Wild turkeys are really startling! The two of yall look lovely in that photo.
