Hammy is a real gentleman, very respectful and calm. Comes across as being sure of himself. Confident. Like an old Soul . Very inquisitive-curious more than cautious. Easy going. Wants to know what is going on and will watch for long periods of time. Very friendly and sweet. Likes to be around people. Even though he came into my white room as big as life and full of confidence he wanted to know "why am I here? I'm a good boy." I told him-you're not in trouble I just want to talk to you if that's okay. Then he was all over me looking for something, like treats or something, very nosey and all up in my business. He wasn't pushy or aggressive, just nosey and looking for something. I asked him if there was something he wanted and he said, "Yeah Carrots. I love carrots."
He likes to go and waits for the next adventure. He craves attention. He's very friendly. He kept looking around. He seemed to be in deep thought and reserved-very private but sweet. He said, "I do my job, I'm a good boy." (I think he was still wondering why he was there.) He likes to run. Favorite thing to do is cut loose in the arena and run as fast as he can. Bucking, kicking and lots of running. The only time he feels free enough to do what he wants to do without worrying about doing his job right or what's expected of him. He says he's very proud of his accomplishments.-big or small. He is almost to the point of being a perfectionist. His desire is to do the job right whatever it is.-whatever is asked of him. "I'm a good boy," he said again." (He said that 3 times) Tolerates being groomed. He knows he needs it all the time because he's white. He accepts it but wishes he didn't have to deal with it.
I asked him is there anything he wanted me to tell Heather and he said. : "To be let out more-to run."
It was so much fun talking to him. I felt like I was talking to royalty and after talking to Heather I can understand why.
He was a champion dressage horse. He's a very good boy!
