I don't like to put pressure on him. He's got a right to privacy, too. He gets a lot of attention, which is good. It's just not something we strive for.
It's really, really cute. If he's getting tired or I think he's getting tired, I just shut it down right there. We'll take a couple of hours off and let him go eat some grapes and lay around.
He does crazy things when he's riding. He'll reach down and pick something up or tip the saddle down to one side. You just don't know what he's going to do. As much as I've seen him ? the hundreds and hundreds of times he's ridden ? sometimes I just get down laughing at him, because some of the stuff he does is just funny.
Audiences just love him. He's just got some magic about him. It doesn't make a difference if someone is 80 years old or 8 years old. They're laughing. People get to laughing so hard at him sometimes I think they're going to have a heart attack. He's put a lot of smiles on people's faces. That's the best part of the whole deal.
