    WOW, just read this thread and got chills. Congratulations to all the progress you've made. Romeo is one amazing horse and you seem to have a bond with him. Love this thread! <3

    I would have to agree with the others, be patient. I bought an untouched, hardly weaned Percheron X. The day after I bought her, I managed to touch her rump-both her back legs flew and got me in the shoulder. It took a week to touch her, a month for her to completely trust us, two months and I can put things on her back and pick up her feet :0 Hope this helped.

    BlueSpark, it occurred to me that you hadn't posted an update on Romeo in awhile, so was curious to hear if you decided to keep him or found him a new home. Would love to hear how he's doing!

    He's doing great! He is now fantastic with his feet, leads really well, stands to be brushed and is used to a saddle pad all over. He's getting better about being approached in the field, and is very good to halter in a small corral, barn or stall.

    I've decided to sell him. My love is distance riding and challenging trails. He's built to pull and would be too bulky to keep the speed I want over the distances I go. It would be unfair to ask him to do something he's not suited to.

    My barn owner has gotten attached to him and *might* be interested in buying off of me, which would be perfect. I'll keep you updated :)

    BlueSpark, I hate to see you sell the big guy. I think all of us have enjoyed reading about him over the last year. Maybe if he stays in the same barn you can continue to give updates on him.

    I would be able to keep working with him for my BO and start his driving training this summer, so I really hope that's what happens
