    I said it in my will clean up the sores, kill whatever organism is in the sores and a "normal" wound ointment can go to work. There is a more in depth explanation on here somewhere.....can't remember the thread, but somebody had a scientific explanation. I just know it cleaned up my boy's scratches really well, and fast

    He needs a friend. Look for Mickey de Belgian on FB. He is a trip, and will be a good friend. Your guy looks SO much better already. Love seeing the progress.

    So it's been a few weeks, I thought I'd update He's doing exceptionally well, putting the weight on, got his feet done a second time. He's beginning to look like a horse again!
    He's been put in my indoor/outdoor stall and been out almost all day every day. His peeing is getting better and he's shedding out nicely :)
    I hopped on last weekend for a little walk around the paddock - and YUP! He's feeling like himself again, stubborn!! His personality is all coming back, he just can't sit still ever. He always needs to be messing with something, he likes to lick my pony's face (they're in stalls facing each other and he can just reach to lick him) - the pony is a little disturbed by it, but stands and tolerates it xD - if the pony isn't there to bother he's knocking down everything around his stall that he can reach. :) Just as happy and annoying as always!! The company I worked for called and said they're happy he's gone because all their carriages aren't being broken any more :P He used to bit holes in the covers of the carriages in front of him and eat the fake flowers decorating them xD

    And some pictures, cause he's just to gorgeous!!

    Good job!
    I would get him a couple of toys. This cylindrical thing to roll around and treats or alfalfa pellets fall out. Or hang up a milk jug with some pebbles in it( he'll most likely will drive pony nuts lol). He seems to be highly intelligent and needs something to do. Trick training would be another possibility.

    Lol he's definitely too smart for his own good!! I figure if the pony gets too annoyed he'll just go to the other side of the stall :P

    I have thought of toys, I gave him sugar-free likits that entertain him a bit. Truthfully I want to avoid noisy toys - I live upstairs of the barn and they're loud enough without bottles full of rocks! XD
    Trick Training will definitely be happening! And as soon as I have the cash for a monster-sized headstall I'll be taking him out for trail rides :) I'm riding him in his halter now and he's good, but strong and if grass were involved I'd never get his head up xD
    I have a mullen mouth snaffle (not-jointed) his size, I hope he goes alright in it - he used to drive in a broken liverpool with the reins on the bottom x.x but he was also working in the city. I think he'll be fine I just need a headstall now :P

    Us riding ^^
