On Saturday we took a horse and carriage ride, with a horse that has issues. Marcus, the horse, has a problem with trucks and buses, he doesn't like them. Matt, the tour guide/trainer, has trained Marcus to stare down the bus or truck. If he encounters one of these he actually stares at it, turning his head until it is completely passed. The whole time taking direction from Matt telling him to "stare it down Marcus". That is the only way Marcus would know in his head that the bus or truck wasn't going to attack him. I have to say it was pretty funny to see this 1800 pound horse staring at the trucks and buses. Matt told us during the training process, Marcus attacked a UPS truck, putting his hoof through the side of the truck.

While we were in Charleston there were two major graduations taking place, The Citadel, and the College of Charleston. Needless to say, it was a very busy place.
Our next stop will be Georgetown, about 64 miles North of Charleston, we will only stop for the night there.
