George's first week home... doing great :)
Here's a couple pics of Wren and George (and Riley, my 3 year old) - he has only been here for 5 days but I am so incredibly happy with him.
Wren and Riley love him. He's unflappable and incredibly cute. I put together a headstall for him using a plain pony bridle and a S Hack, added one of my bling browbands, some pink barrel reins, and a tie-down. He seems to love it - absolutely no head tossing or tension of any kind now.
I am changing his diet over, he wasn't eating his alfalfa hay - just picking at it and pushing it around his bucket - so I got alfalfa pellets and nutrena senior feed. I mix the pellets, senior feed and a scoop of Omega horseshine and add water. He takes his time but finishes every drop. He gets this twice a day. I give him a flake of timothy daily as well to play with though he doesn't really eat it. He is fleshing out really quickly and I hope to have him shiny with a good topline by spring... He nickers when he sees us and comes running for the barn. We stall him for his meals then let him back out with Ivy.
Wren is walking him and guiding him all over and she trotted him today for the first time. I am beyond thrilled with him, and cannot believe we got so lucky in being given him - he's priceless...
