It's Picture Update
time! Again. SammyLog 081213
Second day putting asaddle on Sammy. He takes it very well, though he's not really sure what the point of it is (if only he knew!)
We worked on
- Standing to be brushed and tacked up
- Lunging with the saddle. Only a few bucks!
- Ground tying
- Giving to pressure and being hosed off
All in all he did very well. He's paying more attention to me and less attention to what's going on around him. He really enjoys the attention. When he first got here he'd run if you tried to halter him, now he shoves his nose into it.
He's been very nippy since I got him, which has earned him several 'run ins' with a fist. He seems surprised to be corrected, then does very well for about 10 minutes before his testicales start doing the thinking and he tries again. Stud colts. -.- However today he only tried once! Yesterday I corrected him like 6 times.
Need to work on picking up back feet. He does not like people picking up his back legs. He tries to pull away and he is very strong. We're working on it though.
Anyways, onward to the images
Apparently stall mats are scary.
And a video of hosing him off, just cause

Still having issues finding a saddle that fits him. This ones too big too.
