No Attention

I met my husband and a friend after work at a burned down warehouse to salvage some free wood (we have permission). It was almost dark when I finally got home so I just planned to do a really short session. Chrome was really spooked about something out on the lease land. He didn't even want to come up into the paddock until I went out to him. He was galloping and trotting around, totally spooked. I couldn't figure out what it was even though I walked all around the thicket in the direction he was looking. I have no idea what it was.

He was having trouble concentrating so I just did a quick review of head lowering and backing, from in front and the side. He was snatching at the treats and just not settling down at all. I started to work on some hindquarter yields, but after two tries I knew that just wasn't going to happen tonight. So I fed him and I'll try again tomorrow when he's calmer and more focused.
