Im Still a Baby!

This boy just cracks me up. He isnt just his fairy tale looks, calm temperament, and big body he has got the personality to boot! Always up in your pocket begging for treats or some pets. I had him tied up, with his halter too loose apparently and he rubbed his head and got it right off! It was not even that loose either! But did he move? No he just wanted to prove he could be a big boy and stand for his grooming with no halter on. I do have to say he looked quite pleased with himself. He is still at the mouthy stage and likes chewing on things, he quite enjoyed untying him self also :) Once again longing was not an issue. A few things to keep working on but its only day 2 right?! Only so much I can ask of the boy! His 'whoa' button worked AWESOME today and most horses cannot longe as good as he does after only two days. He is solid walk trot and whoa now. Cantering is harder for him, especially after trotting some and he is tired but he did a little each way.
I switched his and Tolos treats because Mr. Picky didnt like the carrot treats I got him and Tolo will eat any treat you offer :) I think I am going to pick them up some berry treats, everyone seems to like those. Thats all for today. Tomorrow I work late so I will just go out and brush him and let him play for a little bit. No work for him!

  2. Aww. What a sweet pony! I love the untying himself and then standing there thing. There is a horse at OSU who is a pro at taking his halter off while he is being tacked up. Too funny.
