Just a though that occured to me... and there's not much background given, like how long you had him, age and such...but he may be out and a good Chiro adjustment may be in order... from what you did state, it's just not typical.

Baxter needs a meal, or several of them. Please get Baxter on a proper health care and feeding program

I sure am got him on a diet he is alittle fatter now but its going to be another month or two before he gains his four weight I believe I got crooked but I don't know though people thinks he's a Throughbred and some think Tennessee Walker and he is being less stuborn now since I'm taking more interest into him maybe he needs to be retrained that's what I have been thinking to myself Thanks for the advice

He could also be weak from being malnourished

She knows he is to skinny it was addressed in another post and she is in the process of adding weight, he was too skinny when she bought him but she is trying to fix him.

Cowgirl why don't you wait to ride him until he gets a little more weight on him I bet he will be a different horse.

I don't know how long you've had him, but my guess is if you give him some time, he'll come around. You'll get out of him, what you put into him. Such is life.

She didn't know he was skinny until people told her he was skinny. She has had him for several months and who's to say he didn't come to her in good condition as her knowledge sounds limited. I was just pointing out that he may be weak not stubborn. I am looking out for the horses well being.

Forgive me I was under the impression she had not had him very long. Hopefully she will do like she says and keep him on a better diet so he will get fat and sassy.

We have three TWH that are extensively rode. The oldest is twelve and he is a what people in Virginia consider to be traditional bred. He has some very old bloodlines. He is extremely easy to handle and would walk off a cliff if you asked him to. Superb ground manners. Laid back. Next is our seven year old black and white spotted walker. She has the same disposition and temperament. Third is the youngest. She just turned four and is chestnut and white spotted and will give you her all. She was by far the easiest horse ever to train. Never bucked reared fussed nothing. She has been trail riding alone sense day one or throw her in a group of a hundred doesn't matter. She is a go getter and will do anything to please. You could drop a bomb beside her and she wouldn't care. Absolutely amazing horse.
