Riesling decided yesterday that poles are very offensive. He would be trucking along at the trot and see them, stop, rear, and run away. Like what? 

I ended up having to handwalk him over them once and then he was cool with them. I think he doesnt like them because he shuffles his feet and hits them a lot. Which means more poles in the future. And a sassy horse who is going to demand cookies for my abuse.

But he was ~finally~ able to roll and that made him happy. He got winded pretty fast so we are going to be starting work up slowly. Probably another lunge today so he can get any feelings out.
