Beautiful day here in SE Georgia.
Cloudy, but 70 degree's.
Going to take the truck out for a spin this afternoon.
Took Chelsea out for a spin right before lunch.

Now see, if you'd bought that buggy that was on e-bay, you would have been able to take chelsea out and do so with a Studebaker.:D

Of course, chels would have required some training...;)

I used to have a doctor's buggy, a cutter, and a jog cart.
Also had a Morgan who turned 2 out of 3 of them into kindling.
Still have the show harness, but no desire to 'drive' right now...
Running a horse from 10 feet away with 2 strings is not my most secure setting[B)]..

I hooked the shafts up to it on Thursday and took several loads of neighborhood kids for short rides in it. I plan to bring one of my Studebaker buggies to South Bend in June.

Sorry to hear that Jeff. All kidding aside, that was one of the hardest things I had to deal with when I was training horses. People didn't want to spend the money to properly train their horses to drive. It takes time, patience, and proper training. One has to make sure the animal is aware of all the possibilities before going into the shafts. Sounds to me like you, or more precicely, your morgan friend, needed a kicking strap badly.

Oh, I spent the money to have him trained. Even went to school myself. No, he needed an Alpo treatment. He was very well trained and was trained to drive by the Amish in central Wisconsin. He was very good at it, but he had an attention span that was sort of stubborn. After a while, he would just change his mind about doing something and would just stop, or act up. Wasn't a physical thing, and it wasn't a join-up problem. He would just stop cooperating. Wrecked one Amish 'go to town' cart in the ditch. I was handed my horse back with an apology. (I never heard an Amish guy swear like that before[:0]). We had a Hudson jog cart that I restored. He did great for about three months of just working up and down our road. Then one day he decided to make a 90 degree turn right through the ditch and head back to the house. The wife wisely exited out the back as the cart rolled over and he came home at a full tilt and made three laps around the house. Cart was twisted up and bent, but he was all right. Anyways, we sold him a few years ago. The wife would probably like to drive again, but I sold all the driving stuff except for the show harness, which is still in a bag. I get to clean it every year as a reminder;)... Our Walker mare would drive in a snap, and she's a great horse...but still a mare (ie: eating machine)..
Jeff;)

You know, I had an Appy like that once. We would go out for a ride and he would be an absolute gem. The next day, taking the same route, he would go nuts! He'd spin kick buck and carry on like the Devil himself was present. When he was done, it was like nothing had happened.

I always worked a horse under saddle before even starting with the ground (for driving) training. Fortuneately, this Appy showed his colours before I started. Deciding he was unsafe for any use of any kind, I sold him rather quickly. The next owner made dog food out of him.
