    Yep...just chalk it up in him doing his thing. Hang in there.

    Horses usually get quite "high" on the first crisp days of Fall. Did the rain bring cooler weather? It might have revved him up.

    It was slightly less humid so yeah a little cooler temps. He definitely gets spunky when it cools off. I am just glad to hear this is something that happens to other people because if it was something I was doing wrong in training it obviously needed to be fixed

    Yeah that is what I am afraid of. This is my first male dog. I am very pleased with his work when he is in it to win it, but like I said earlier, he can have a mind of his own every now and then. Great dog, high drive, just a little unruly at times.
