Hanuman gets mixed reviews

She thought that since Hanuman had mastered all the obstacles, She would enter him in the Horse Agility video contest for April.  She invited a friend round to video him performing the whole routine At Liberty.  Given the limited attention span of the average two year old, Posy and I were pretty sure it would go wrong and we weren't disappointed.  We snickered from the stables while Hanuman pretended he had never seen such obstacles before.

He did get a carrot for his efforts, but it was the small wrinkled one.
She claimed that it was a windy day and the presence of an extra person must have caused him to lose focus, so her very patient friend turned up again the following day to try again.  At the second attempt, he seemed more interested in scratching himself than doing the course, but in the end it was decided that he did pretty well for a two year old considering and he got a large juicy carrot at the end.

She has grave doubts about whether he will achieve the 60% needed to complete his performance targets.  Meanwhile, Hanuman is looking forward to showing off his prancing skills in the next video competition.
