Doing SO good

Mr Man had the weekend off as I was at my dads house. My mom went over and played with him a bit and came back to say he is super sweet, has a lot of hair, and is really lazy :) I pulled out the lunge line expecting to be back a few steps because he wasnt lunged the last few days but he was great! He has walk/trot/whoa down great and we started canter work today. It is a little hard for him but he kind of got the hang of it by the end! I brushed his hair out and am planning on washing his tail tomorrow. Any suggestions on how to keep a 10 pound 20 inch thick tail clean and off the ground so it grows more?! I would love any advice! I think he mane is still growing so im trying to keep it up as much as possible so it continues to grow as beautiful as it already is! He still is working on the whole steering thing so I think ground driving him some more would be helpful. I might start long lining him at least at the walk and trot so when his canter is better on lunge line he can go right to cantering on the long line. Will hopefully get some more pictures soon! Maybe even a little video by the end of the week if I can get my mom out with me!

  1. Ahhhhh that is great! He loves you! Braid his tail and that will help. Some people fold it in half and put it in a tail bag. The hair will keep growing right down to the ground. He is in a great place to grow hair now! I can't wait to see him next Spring!!!! He should have his own calendar! ha ha
    Thank you for the update!

  2. I will have to try the tail bag. I did have it braided for awhile and that seemed to do pretty good also. His tail is already dragging the ground! I was thinking about a tail bag but didnt think it would fit :) I will try folding it in half. I will bring him over to play in the summer!
