He's lovely!! In a way its a good thing his breeder never touched him, that means she can't have 'dont it wrong' and made him badly behaved.

Look forward to hearing his progress report.

Considering his history, he looks pretty good. Not starved, not abused. You have a fairly clean slate to work with as you bring him into usefullness. Hope you get he papers on him & that the training goes forward easily.

That little snip looks soooo kissable.

Congratulations on your new family member and looking forward to seeing his progress!

I think he is just adorable. I too would be smooching on that little snip every day. It just calls out to you and nothing sweeter then a soft little horsey nose. Ha ha Can't wait to see him grow up a bit. He is a lovely boy. Long wait to do anything riding wise but... lot of ground work to be done. He is a great age to get busy with all that fun stuff. He didn't look too worse for wear after his gelding. Looks to be a pretty brave, sensible boy. Good for you on your wonderful find.

He certainly is a cute little guy! I also like the looks of him.

What a steal! I demand more pictures as he grows up. That's going to be one fine looking gelding.

Wow, you certainly got a heck of a deal. He is one fine looking colt.

We got to go play with Rebel today. He's still doing well, but is a bit swollen from the gelding. Vet said to expect swelling around the 3rd day, and here it is, right on schedule! If he hasn't gone down by tomorrow night, I'm going to call the vet and see what we can do for him. He doesn't seem to be too stiff or sore however, so I'm not terribly worried.

Caly still hasn't taken a liking to him. Starting to wonder if she'll ever like him. I kept trying to get a picture of her pinning her ears at him for another thread on here about cranky mares, but every time she heard the camera flash, she perked them up! Persistence prevailed, though, and I got a good "mare glare" from her. *sigh*

We groomed Rebel, worked on more desensitizing in general, and starting working on walking over obstacles. He wasn't a fan of it at first, but after a while hubby and I both got him to walk over the pole a handful of times without hesitation. Yay! Very proud of the progress he's making, even though it's "baby steps." He is only a baby, after all!

Tomorrow is his first hoof trim, and we're going to try to trim his fronts without mild sedation first. If he proves to be a handful, we'll give him the sedative and then finish him out. Keeping my fingers crossed that he behaves like the good boy I know he can be. Will be taking before and after pics of his poor little hooves. I know he'll be much more comfortable after they're trimmed.
