Didn't I say I don't necessarily have to use my crop? Latte isn't as bad as Edward. The trouble is if I'm not carrying a crop I end up using my hand instead because Edward sometimes just doesn't listen. It's interesting that Edward has his days when he's lovely and responsive, even forward (jumping days mostly), and his days when he's SuperSlug, the sluggiest slug of all slugdom. Latte on a good day is lovely and forward and responsive regardless of if I have my crop or not and on a bad day is a disaster waiting to happen - not that I've ridden him lately, not since the last bad day.
