Today we made the journey down to Martinborough to take Brennan to Gavin Morison's for 'breaking in'. He loaded quietly and happily into the float and travelled like a dream. When we got there, there was another horse leaving and a truck and a few people around but he wasn't phased and unloaded quietly. I popped him in the big round pen to start and let him soak up some of the atmosphere. I half expected him to have a bit of a trot around and a shout but he was very chilled. He had a 'chat' to a couple of horses in the next paddock and a bit of a look about and that was it. We popped his rug back on and left him to chill out whilst Gavin sorted out paddocking arrangements. I miss him already but he's in great hands and he is going to LOVE having something to do and I really cannot wait to see him under saddle.
