Thanks! Here's some more pics from today. He already looks better after being here a week.

Ignore the double halter. I like using a rope halter more than a chain and didn't feel like taking the other one off just bring him down to the barn to hose him down.

It's hit or miss here. It can be nice and cool for a week then go back up to the 80's the next day. We got snow in October last year (granted it was just a dusting, but still.) The weather is really wacky! My Barn Owner goes by the moon-signs for castration too, she thinks they bleed less. She's got two to geld while I got one, we'll be splitting a farm call

Sammy (Who I am considering renaming) has been with me for 2 weeks now.

Still haven't gotten his feet done, our Farrier came last week and had an hour to do a shoe reset and 2 trims before he had to run out and pick up his daughter for a horse show. He's coming tomorrow. We've been working on picking up Sammy's legs, he's good with the front two but the back he tries to avoid.

A little butt high. >.> His half brother grew well into his 5th year.

The above picture is Sammy, the below headshot is Sammy's Father Just Shockin Y'all

You can see where he gets his good looks. ;) His Dam has a really short mane and tail, so he definitely takes after his Sire (especially in the nipping department.)

Trying to get the boob when I was trying to pose with him. ^^^

Getting use to being in a stall for short periods of time.

And a video, not sure if it'll pop up. I can't get into youtube where I am right now but I have the link.

We put a traffic barrel in his pasture to play with, he was scared and hiding behind me.

And that's all I got.

Haha. I know I love that picture.

I also like those 2 lines of high tinsel barely keeping him in (at his last farm *twitch*)
Thank GOD he respects a fence.

Put Sammy under a saddle today for the first time. He's doing a lot better now that he's got constant handling, but he still needs several reminders that biting is not allowed. He's not as pushy as he was, and has learn to tie. I scheduled his gelding for Friday, so hopefully once he has some 'brain surgery' he'll remember his lessons better.

Saddle doesn't fit him at all. So tomorrow I need to dig through all my tack and find something that fits him better, and use a shorter girth.

He has the shortest back ever.

All in all he did really well. Stood for the saddle, bucked under the lunge line but expected that. Kept him moving until he was going at a smooth pace, then had to stop cause the saddle started slipping off.

It's Picture Update time! Again.

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.
