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 :)

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!!!

I have a flu and I'm exhaused, so all you get is an Iphone pic today. Proof that he can wear a halter anyways. And it was much easier to put on today

Sorry you're not feeling well. Get better soon!

He's just as smexy as I remember .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
