    Bluespark, what type of camera do you use. Your pics are so clear and sharp and show so much detail.

    What a handsome looking boy, take your time, make progress slowly, you will get there. Don't let his feet stress you to much, unless they are breaking up or cracking he can actually exist with farrier treatment for a while.

    Yes I know that is a heathen statement, but when I bought Bert she hadn't had her feet handled in 7 years or so, and because I was initially well out of my depth with her, it took 2 years before I got her trimmed here, never took a lame step or had any issues with her feet.

    Thanks every one! HUGE UPDATE:

    I GOT TO PET HIM!!!! I'm sooooo excited! Had him in a giant box stall with the door open, so he could get out if he felt to claustraphobic. I rubbed him with a "carrot stick" all over then I thought, why not? It felt right. I walked over and starting petting him! He tensed at first and flinched, but quickly calmed downThis is such a huge step, and he took a treat out of my hand, first time. Super happy right now.

    Wow, sounds like you are making amazing progress with the big guy. He is, like everyone else said, absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

    I have actually found that springtime is the absolute best time for making friends with cautious horses. Once you can get to the point where you can touch them and rub on them a bit, they'll figure out that you enjoy scratching all their itchy spots where they are shedding. That helps them to calm down quickly .
