The Delicate Art of Mounting

One of the things that I love about Steele (one of many) is how rock solid he is for mounting.

He was definitely showing off last week with his audience. Since he seems to pretty much know what he was doing he asked if he could show you what it's all about.

Step 1: Make sure that the photographer is paying attention.Line your body up with the  mounting block. Humans have short legs so you need be close. Even though the grass is right there you shouldn't eat it. Your human will want to pat around make some noise. Just ignore her- if you move she does more of it.  

Step 2: This is the most critical step. As your human gets on make sure that you do not move a muscle. If you move she may fall off and get hurt. If she's hurt you may not get any carrots while she's laid up. Note how attentive my ears are. 

 Step 3: Once she's on, breathe a sigh of relief that she didn't fall off over the other side. Check that the photographer captured the moment while your human basks in your fabulousness. 

Step 4: Try to remain patient while she fiddles around up there. Even though you know that you there's stuff to do, you might as well relax and enjoy the ear scratch.
