Romeo is a seriious hunk! I wish I could get my hands on a Juliet before he goes under the knife. So sorry to hear that you are down with the flu. Hope you are better soon. And it is NOT just because I am greedy for more pictures, honest!

You have until monday to show up with Juliet. Then he gets gelded, has his shots and gets his feet trimmed. We were hoping to do all this earlier, but between crazy weather, him not wanting a halter on, the chute system we needed not available, no appointments available at the vets and then the vet being on vactation, its been delayed. Now that he has a halter on, our regular vet can come out to the farm and sedate him with out a chute.

Hopefully all goes well, he wakes up a new man(or purhaps lack thereof?)

Hope he takes the shots OK - when we had an 8 yr old stallion gelded (he was just tooooooo aggressive) he tried to kill the vets who showed him a needle when our new girl here got very upset we gave her ACP in liquid form to settle her down first. Just a thought
This boy is so lucky you found him and this reinforces something we discussed on another thread - just how important it is to educate foals from the 'get go', a small pony can be a handful at 3 yrs if it doesn't want to play pretty but this guy would have been bigger & stronger than most ponies as a foal most people would have been put off faced with this giant and a stallion to boot so he was destined for the meat market before he even got a chance to be anything - or even ended up being badly abused by someone less patient and calm because no one thought it mattered or could be bothered
Had to put this clip in of Clydes being shown under saddle in their native Scotland - they are not docked by the way - that's just how they have always been traditionally shown over there.
Good on you - and aren't you a 'useless' woman too? Even better lol, Keep the info coming

MANE UNTANGLED!!!(Can you tell I'm excited about his progress) I got him on a lung line yesterday for his first leading session. We worked mainly in the barn and a little in the yard, just giving to preasure and moving those feet. Lots of turning. He paniced once and took off in the yard, but only ran a few feet before he stopped and waited for me
Then we had our first real grooming session. I showed him the brush once before, but this was the first time he had his whole body brushed. We also were able to cut out the giant snag(guinea pig sized) in his mane, apply MTG and detangle by hand most of the big knots. He did so well:p
Vet appointment for gelding and trimming on monday.

Thankfully this guy doesnt have a aggressive bone in his body. He might try to take off, but he hasnt so much as glared at any creature since he got to the farm.

Bluespark, most people have a hard time bonding to a horse because the horse knows all this stuff and trusts already, but when you start from scratch like you are, you and this big guy are going to have the most amazing bond that everyone is going to be insanely jealous.
