Ya that's what I've been doing so far. Last night I tied him up and brushed him down and he was pretty quiet. Its nice to know he enjoyed the brushing. Then I let him loose again and just cleaned his paddock and I would walk up to him and he would walk away a few times but when he figured out I wasnt trying to catch him, just give him some rub downs then he was good. When I left the paddock he followed me to the gate. That made me happy :) The smallest things make me happy with this horse...Im going to take the small wins! Haha
He was never fed any apples or any thing with his previous owners so he wont take any thing from me besides grain but he wont take it from my hand but he figured out the grain bucket pretty quick, he will come to me when its in my hand but I don't want to have a grain bucket in my hand every time I try to catch him so we have lots to work on...
O the joys of having a new horse..
