Hahaha oh dear this is not good, you've found my weakness already :O If he goes under 16hh I will be devastated!!!!
He is filling out though, and he is still like an old man to work with, just goes 'yeah yeah mum I already know that one'. We learnt how to walk forward to a tap of a dressage whip today. Big step forward from the baby bum rope, though not that he's used that since he was a weanling, he leads so well off the halter anyway! Taped him a couple of times on the first attempt, then twice on second attempt and every time thereafter he walked off as soon as I pointed the whip at his bum, and stopped as soon as I asked him to. Such a smart little cookie!
I've had him since July, but he's only been living close to home for 2 months :)
