okay I understand now. Thanks for answering my questions! If I were you I don't know how I would be able to leave him in the first place he is so darn cute!

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.

Heheh happy little dude! <3 Love what you're doing with him too! He is just getting more and more cute the older he gets! Is he heading to 4 weeks old now? My memory sucks!

He'll be 4 weeks this Tuesday - I can't believe how fast its gone by!
We just did another session with him - he has got the hang of being led around so well, he takes me for a walk faster than I can walk LOL

I tried to groom his Mother and ignore him before his session so he would be ready for it with bright eyes and bushy tail, but ignoring him is impossible, he doesn't allow it.
He picks up brushes, he sucks my shirt, he taps me with an experimental hoof, he tries to see if he can climb on top of me, he demands kisses by shoving his nose in my face....you get the picture.
I guess soon we'll be looking at teaching him about personal space LOL

The thing is, I believe a horse, and in particular a foal, is never NAUGHTY, if he's not doing what you want him to it's simply that he doesn't understand and that is what all our teaching philosophy is about.

Besides which he's just so darn funny and inquisitive.
Oops I went into lecture mode again...sorry about that.

Hahah that is brilliant! Pan gets grumpy with her mum when she is ignored. No where near as friendly as your boy! But still love her :P and well done on the the leading!

Zephyr and his mother are very musical. They’re a bit like the VonTrap family only there are only two of them and they are horses, and they frolic around on a flat bit of land ironically named Mount Not. So…they’re not actuallylike the Von Trap family at all however that does not stop them from singing whenever the mood takes them… Today it was a Blues song…
So without further ado may I introduce Zephyr Clapton and his mother....

Merlot, it's so cool to read about his Lordships sessions - glad to see someone who does it with that much patience, feel and loving attitude. Just the attitude I'd use if I ever get to raise a foal. :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Thanks Saranda, Good for you
I know some people will think I am stupid to take so much time over it and probably think I am spoiling him but I know he is secure and enjoying every contact he has with me and to me that is vital!
OOPS just stopped myself going off into lecture mode again!!! Shut up Cath shut up...

These are the most important days of his young life. What you do now sets the tone for how he views things with humans in his life. As long as he's remaining respectful, which sure looks like he is to me, you are doing him a great service! *coughs* And yourself, because it's just fun and he's too adorable :)
