My boy is getting the stallion prance coming in but he has great manners! His neck is coming in and he's slowly filling out in all the right places. Just today he decided to grunt and groan when I was groping him and giving him a sheath scratch. He didn't do that last week but now maybe he's starting to feel good. I'm just doing it so he gets used to being handled.
He was getting a little mouthy so we fixed that with a finger in the nose and that stopped that. He's getting curious about the human males so I'm trying to get as many of my guy friends to come out and play games with him.
One of my close friends has been training colts for 30 years and she's working three days a week with him on manners and over all everything. So far so good. Once in a while he tries his stud prance, arches his neck and calls but as soon as another horse of any gender answers or shows interest nose nose with him he's all baby, nuzzling and chewing his tongue. He's 10 months old. He's presented himself, flopped it against his belly and jumped about 3 feet up and over and then spun in a circle with his head to his flank trying to catch a glimpse of whatever attacked him.
When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!
