    I love the name Snickers for a horse, but I don't know if it matches the color (or if you care if it does or not). I know a big Belgian named chase who is of similar color, so I think that fits, too.

    I like chase.

    Does he lead?

    If not id get a halter on him and get him giving to pressure and leading.
    Probably leave a rope on for him to drag for a couple days before that.
    Id get him in a round pen and get him changing directions and doing a little ground work.
    Have respect then start working with touching his body. Neck first, shoulder, back, take it slow. Eventually get to legs/feet.
    Id do that every day. Well not longing but just messing with him.

    Im doing a colt of my own this way.
    Only once he gave to pressure and accepted that rope he is a lot better. In 2 days he let's me mess with his legs. No problems with belly rubs, only a little face shy..

    Nope. He won't even let me touch him. I have a lot of work to do and I'm excited! :] lol

    Lol yup. Id pen him, halter and get to work.
    But that's how we have always done it and they turn out fine.

    Some people like to go slow with it. Which I've done before. The other way I find easier. Quicker. And never had a problem.

    I ruled out the name johnny since my friends name is jaunie. Red, Hank, Kingston, and chase are a few that I'm currently thinking of.

    I'm so curious as to what he's going to end up looking like since there's a ton of white hairs coming in all over! [:

    I like Caeser or Red... And I would grab a book (Or for most people, a smart phone :p) and sit in his pen on the ground and let him be curious and walk over to you and whatnot. Plus, if you have a smartphone, you could sneak a few more pictures :) Good luck with him! He's a cutie.
