Mmmmhmmm, tomorrow, for pictures, really? OMG How can you tell us you got the halter on him and NOT post pictures ya meannie I been stalking and stalking, I meant looking and looking for new pictures on here. Gee Whiz woman I need a fix LOL
I've been working to get the halter on him for weeks(vet appointment next week) and the round pen gets dry when I'm away and turns into a swamp when I'm here. I ended up covered in mud and I forgot my camera, so you'll have to be patient :)
We will hold you to this! Seriously, Romeo is fabulous. He is so lucky you came into his life; not many people could or would take on the challenge. Good luck to you, and keep the reports coming. You have a whole fan club out hereM
Had to look at this as we have a mini clyde mare - she would be called a gypsy cob but we know that she is a result of a cross with an arab hence her 15.2 height and slightly smaller head and shorter legs. You are so brave and I thought I was crazy!!! I've bought quite a few untouched horses over the years and like you had to 'drive' them onto a trailer and the same at the other end but never anything that big. We found just having them around the barn with our other horses and seeing that they were settled and happy helped a lot and that they were relying on us for food too as they didn't go out in a pasture with the others as never sure we could catch them again. Its a slow and patient job as the first time you flap them could be the last chance you get if enough trust hasn't been established. They all did really well and I can honestly say that none of them was anywhere near as bad as my old girl who was hand reared by the people I bought her off with no ground rules and lots of peppermints. She had no respect whatsoever and for a while it felt like I needed full body armour to go near her.
Unless you really want a stallion I would suggest you have him castrated - maybe you already have as I have skipped some.
I'll be watching this thread with great interest!!!
