Last week we took a rare day off work and got out in the middle of the afternoon to do some training with Freighter. It was nice to be in a park that was mostly empty. We did not have to worry about sharing the space so we were able to spread out.
We are working on a few things with Freighter. We are stretching out his marks to 100-150 yards, doing simple doubles, and working on handling basics. These are in addition to working on him being steady, coming to heel and giving up his bumpers/birds.
He is doing very well with his training and having fun. His marking is very nice, even at a distance, and he seems to be getting the hang of watching and remembering two marks. He has a bit to go on his handling, but we have the winter to work on that.
It was a bright sunny day which made it tough to be in a good position for pictures, but I did get a few.
