A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. That is all I can really say. And a big congratulations to getting this far with him. Looking forward to more updates of Romeo!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

awww its nice to hear that although he does have a lot of power, he's careful with smaller animals around him. He definitely looks like a Romeo =) can't wait to see new pics and hear how the gentling is going

Good for you for taking Romeo! He has the perfect name that I'm sure he will live up to in time. Please keep us posted!

It finally dried up enough for some round pen work. He goes both directions, w/t/c and stops and faces me on comand. He'll also let me walk up to him and pet him, in the middle of the round pen! I think this is a pretty big step, he can run, but chooses not to.

I've started rubbing him down with his halter and lead, I was able to get a lead around his neck(cant quite get the halter on) and start teaching him to give to preasure and follow me. He did GREAT it wont be long now before I can get a halter on Pictures to follow(the usb cable is mysteriously missing)

Congrats! This is one of my favorite threads, and I love to hear about him! Even the little things seem that much more intense with a horse of that size and power.

your telling me I have to stretch as tall as I can just to get the rope over his neck when he's relaxed. He's got to be 6' at the withers(18hh, if I'm not mistaken). Thankfully when he panicks he runs away from me. I've taken to chanting " only 12" between 15 and 18hh" in my head. I've been called crazy a few times for this one
