This weekend was DRAWarama from Thursday to Sunday.  DRAW is “Distance Riders Across Wisconsin,” and they sponsored this event.  Although it was a bit chilly, the weather was reasonable.  Except for a little drizzle Sunday morning, it stayed dry.   This event is held at the Horserider’s Campground near Palmyra, in the Southern Kettle Moraine.  The trail is very varied, with hills, rocks, sand, and pine forests.

We have discovered that Loki appears to be terrified of stethoscopes, so the vets were very patient with him. While a vet was trying to check his pulse or gut sounds, Ray would ply him with treats.  Loki’s behavior was so extreme on Thursday that Ray opted to pull him from the competition rather than take a chance on someone getting hurt.  But by Sunday, Loki was much better behaved, and didn’t lose any “bad manners” points.  So if anyone has any old stethoscopes you want to get rid of, send them to us.  We will hang them all over the barn to desensitize him. 🙂  Also, Loki is much calmer if Lil Kay is close to him, whereas Lil Kay was better if she couldn’t see, smell, or hear him.

A big thank you to the vets for their patience, and ride management for allowing us to adjust drive start times to try and make both horses happy.
