So Phoenix is nearly 7 months old. I've yet to have our second pasture set up, so I can't fully wean Phoenix though Lena is helping out. I also am going to start taking him into the round pen for an hour or so, start to increase the time. I actually did this a few days ago, getting him to follow my gelding. He didn't care he was away from momma, but he didn't want to go back into the pasture and was a butt. So I had to SEARCH for a halter that fit him. He out grew his colt halter which is I think 200-400 pounds, but a yearling is to big which is 400-800. I coudn't find no middle, except online which was 400-600. I'm hoping it will fit so I can get him into the pen and start with lead training so I can get him in there easier.
For the last bit of this small update I'm doing, is last week I could have swore Phoenix broke my arm. I personally don't think he meant to. I was going out to feed and all the horses ran up, must of felt good because they all were bucking and kicking around. I was walkin beside Lena and Phoenix was a little off to my right ahead of me. I seen him buck up and it was to late and he got me in my arm. It hurt SO bad. Not a week before that a baby at my school had kicked me in the almost exact spot but it was nothing like that at all.
It is still in the process of getting worse as I've been told it will. I still don't blame him, in my opinion he didn't mean to. Since he was a foal he has never purposely kicked at me even when I had to tackle him to give him shots. I still love him. :)
