I'm not sure Nickel knows he's a Belgian, or what that means. I know Toni would refer to him as her "Big Boy" and Merri would call him "Mr. Man" however when he's in Mini's little grazing pen, I question his understanding. Bob is still working with Jake,and tonight I did not ride Nick so I put him in Mini's grazing pen. I am not sure he understands he could step over the knee high fence. Bob got thrown for the first time, glad that's out of the way!
