    Kait18 - here is the first monster photo - didn't take long, huh?

    This was actually the first day we brought him home... I was cleaning the barn letting Wren lead George around in the front of the barn. Heard barking and went out to check and found that Wren had climbed on from the fence and was walking him up and down the fence line to the backyard, driving Rosie the mastiff crazy....

    Snapped a pic then had her bring him in, and gave her a lecture about
    1) Riding without permission and supervision
    2) Riding without a helmet
    3) Riding next to the dogs

    ... good to know he will tolerate her foolishness.

    Happy for you! I can't wait until our son is a bit older and can start riding. I can only hope that we will be able to find a wonderful, older pony and offer him the same thing. Enjoy him!

    I know right - we should start a thread about the stupidest things we done and lived through on our horses (I have a list since I grew up with little parental concern about our horses- they thought as long as we were out riding we were safe )

    I had thought I needed to separate George while feeding, but found out that he guards his food well - I had opened his stall door as he was finishing up and Ivy went in to investigate, he put his ears back and threatened to double barrel her, she backed up quickly and left him alone - she's low man on the totem pole out here.

    Now everyone gets their food in their stalls and when they are done they head out to the pasture - he guards his until he's done ... it keeps my stalls clean and makes it all easy.

    Hahaha little man has some kahunas how is he with you or your daughter in the stall while he is feeding?? I would hate for that to be a problem

    Ps . I hope you weren't to crazy with your horses when you were younger. My mom likes to remind me that when I get older my kids will do the same dumb stuff and possibly dumber because kharma is always around the corner waiting to strike back you have been warned lol

    I don't let Wren feed without me in there holding him in the corner. When I feed he wanted to crowd me at first so I pushed him away and made him wait until I left the stall. He seems respectful enough to people, has never turned his rump or threatened any bad behavior, but he does LOVE his mash. He waits at the door very impatiently, nickering while we mix it up but knows I wont pour it into his feed bucket until he steps away. No problems so far...

    I'm going to start a thread about surviving the stupidity of youth with your horses, so look for that over there and add your stories too ... as you'll see, I am going to have to work double time to keep Wren safe if she is anything like I was when I was growing up ...
