    Yeah! Shooter still gives me the "why can't I just be retired" look or otherwise the "oh, its you again" look. :p

    Obviously it is something to work on, but its not so much an issue as he's a COMPLETELY BROKE HORSE. He's just an ass sometimes, and he knows he better behave or he's going to have a hail mary.

    The point of stating that is a horse can do everything you ask and more, but still disrespect you and be beligerent twats.

    And yeah, that probably sounded counter intuitive. But I've never once had him kick at me,

    My horse is as broke as they come.....he needs a spell, so I'm getting him so decent turn out in three weeks.....that's his problem!!! He's getting cabin fever!

    Yeah, with shooter he's just lazy and has too much time off. I don't have time to really work him, as well, not my horse, and he's an hour and a half away.

    And by stating prior that he was completely broke, I meant that in a sense that he's been around the block enough to know that certain things bring death and terror-- as he used to be one of those extremely aggressive types. Until he got hit with a frying pan for charging.

    Chopper is pretty broke, he does what I ask and does it happily. No buck or rear(usually). He's just a turd and likes to test. I also want some finishing done on him by a reining trainer. I could easily finish him as a trail horse or barrel horse myself but I do not have the time right now. So off to the trainers it is!

    Yarg. I think with babies, more trouble can occur for not setting the record straight in the beginning. But then again, that could be equal to any horse, no?

    The problem only arose recently when he got worked often. He's probably soured from it, which I don't blame him. But he's a good boy, and very predictable, I just need to stop being lazy and actually dedicate a work day to him. But then again, as I said, come spring he's getting a hail mary.

    Babies are more impressionable, in my experience. Chopper learned early on that biting is BAD and he will DIE if he bites me. Tried it once, got back handed across the snoot and backed up across the pen. Hasn't done it since.

    Right. I have yet to work with babies myself. It would seem to be sooo much easier having a clean slate and if you know what you were doing, rather than fixing poor training.

    It is. I very much enjoy babies. I've been the first rider on so many of them, starting when I was maybe 14/15 ish. I put a few rides on them for my grandmother(since I'm little and she doesn't bounce as well...I'm the guinea pig) and she usually finishes them, though the past few just got sold to good homes. She's losing interest in babies and big horses, she does the mini thing now. I love babies. I'd rather work with a minimally or unhandled youngster than a spoiled one.

    I totally hear you. Having no years and no experience beats so many years doing nasty bad habits!
