Sharing some news: Headshy horse
We switched barns back in April (money issues) and he has changed 100%. He loves being outdoors and has calmed down competely. He is on pasture with hay. I can get on him bareback no problem, and haltering him is no problem. He still is stubborn when it comes to riding or coming to the barn, but he is still alot better.
Anyways, I was at the barn yesterday with a group of riders who were all grooming their horses (alot have bad feet and Mur's best friend Freckles developed rain rot, Mur only has scratches here and there). While grooming, I scratch his ears to see how he reacts to my touch.
He lets me touch his bad/right ear now! Well, stroke it but that is a big step so far! I am waiting for the day I can slip his bridle on easily without doing the buckles. Haha. That is all. I am happy about his ears now.
I want to try a fly ear veil on him for riding, so I am going to look for one and try it out and see how he is. =]
