Last week, I asked Buddy if I could leave Zum’s toy which is a rope connected to an old halter that Zum loves to tug on with his teeth. Buddy told me that Zum should be tired after being ridden and should lay down and rest. When I rode Zum yesterday, Buddy told me that I sounded like I was begging Zum to do something. Buddy wants my tone of voice to be more firm and assertive. So I took Buddy’s advice and I told Buddy that I was going to put up Zum’s toy in his corral. Zum started playing with it right after I hung it up!
