65 % Friesian colt
Hi there friesian fans!
I recently purchased a Friesian Dutch Warm blood cross 8 month old gelded colt. Both parents are tobiano. The sire is 3/4 Friesian and the dam is half Friesian. My guy, Lil Ricky, looks very Friesian with no white at all. What a doll he is and as sweet as can be.
I am trying to do everything right and had my vet out for his boosters, worming and setting up a feed program.
We are working on ground manners, picking up feet, leading, ponying and games. He is very smart, personable and loves being handled.
I have a HUGH arena that I use to free lunge him and my 17 year old babysitter Arab gelding Muscat who sets the pace and Lil Ricky stays glued to his side. We do this once to twice a day for 15 minutes. I also have a round pen but I feel it's too tight for either horse.
My question is is it too much for my now 9 month old colt to be working him like this yet? My vet thought he moved great when I showed her what we do. I just hope I'm not doing too much.
I will post a pic as soon as I figure out how, lol
