A little tap and he should get the message. His mum looks like she lets him walk all over her haha How is your arm? :(

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Arm is very bloody sore **** it. Have been told I HAVE to stop using it...IE taking photos (I prop my arm up - I thought that was OK Apparently not)
Am just going out now to see if I can gently start to get His Lordship used to wearing a halter for short bursts. This should be interesting- have got him used to being scratched all around his ears and head...next step....

I don't know whether you're mad or awesome to be trying to pop a halter on your dude with one arm! BE CAREFUL! Don't hurt yourself woman!
Oh and take photos too ;)

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Merlot please be careful! Humans do not make good toys zephyr.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Is there anyone you can get to help you the first time you halter him? It might be a good idea...since Zephyr is Zephyr, if you know what I mean:)

My dear little man and his beautiful Mother.
He is being sooo good. Am just gently popping a rope over his neck and his back and rubbing him.
Got the halter around his head and nose but did not do it up - just held it there for a bit and then took it away before he moved off and he was totally chilled. Have done this twice now - 5 min sessions only. Tomorrow I may try doing it up. To be honest all he wants to do is to chew the buttons on my shirt LOL.

I can also rub all his legs and when he is lying down can tap his little hooves and rub his tummy.

As you can see he is not the slightest bit concerned about the strange person kneeling down beside him!

Anyhow here are today's photos including some of him with my very closest friend who has come to stay a few days. Roz has totally fallen in love with him as you can see 1 week 4 days
