Track Jake the Belgians Progress!

Update #2

I'm not going to bother you guys by updating everyday (unless you want me too) but I had to show you the difference in his eyes just between yesterday and today. You can see more hope in them everyday I took him out today and brushed him up a bit and just let him hand graze for awhile. He actually did a little spook at nothing, just a feel good spook, that made me feel good! And now when ever he sees me he walks right up to me and follows me around. I just love him soooo much!

Here are a couple pictures from today!

Oh golly, he's soo skinny. How sad. :( Do you know how he ended up like this?
Kudos for taking him in, I'm looking forward to seeing him get fat. :)

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

He looks awesome in red! And he looks way more alert and happy!

Aw, you can tell his personality is coming out more now that he has access to some food and has some energy. I adore those pix of his head over the fence, he just looks so happy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Just a small update. Jake got a small bath today, he didn't mind it at all, he really seemed to enjoy it, and boy did he need it! Unfortunatly I left my camera at home :o so no pictures. The vets coming tomorrow to do a full check up, take blood and everything! So more updates then

On another note, Jake doesn't know how to crosstie, how do you think would be the best way to teach him what cross ties are all about?

Awww!!! I think he's a trouble maker in disguise! He's all cute and sweet now but you just wait..he'll be stealing grooming brushes in no time!
I'll definitely keep coming back! I can't wait to see him after a bath!

I am happy that his bath went well. I can't really help with the crosstie thing as none of mine are broke to them either. ;p
