Since the first try at putting them together didnt go so well, today I thought I would try it with a fence in between. It went way better than I expected. When I brought them in tonight, I haltered Bud, left him at the gate, haltered Bandit, led him out so I could let Bud out and grab his lead rope and then I walked them both together down to the barn. It went really well! I was surprised Fred didnt say something about me doing that as he stood in front of the barn and watched. I handed Bud off to him and then we put them in their stalls. And a good night was had by all!
