Thumbs up before & after

This probably isn't the greatest accomplishment ever, but I got this little guy when he was just coming two years old. The people who had him before me decided it was good to try & break him as a 1 1/2 year old & leave him tied in a yard with very little grass & no grain or hay to give him any protien or vitamins that his growing body needed. He's now 3 years & 4 months old, & I'm pretty happy with the progress he's made. Last weekend I started the process of beginning to train him, he's a bit scared & nervous but he finally got the idea & after five good rounds around the pasture I ended it on a good note.

I disagree, it's a pretty big achievement, I am sure your horse appreciates it and thinks it's the best thing ever.

Congrats, and good job.
