    Very nice explanation and it's good for you to have to write it out, it makes you really think about how you did what you did. Great work. YOu can be very proud of yourself.

    Sounds like you have done a wonderful job.
    I would caution you about even doing too much handling of the horse unmounted. If he were to knock you down, you would be in a world of hurt.
    I would feed him and put him on hold.

    Yeah, I am very careful with him even on the ground. He has done a 180 as far as ground manners and respects my space very well. I am never out with him alone, and if I feel I shouldn't be doing something, my husband takes over and does stuff (I must say it has been VERY hard to step aside and let him do it). Usually I just go out and brush and love on him. I have been practicing squaring up, and also backing and leading better. Every once in a while I will throw him in the roundpen and free lunge him. I also walk him up and down hills to try to build his muscle. That's the extent of what I do.

    My husband does the fun stuff, shoveling poop, picking feet, etc.

    I am also very fortunate with where he is at. A friend of mine, the one in the video, takes very good care of Onyx for me, and I give her advice and help her with her colt, although that doesn't happen nearly as much anymore because of my pregnancy. Usually now I just kind of "coach" her.

    Really I am not worried about my horse hurting me. I am more wary of the 11 month old colt that he is in with!
