Adopted rescue TWH and needs help with ground manners
I just joined this forum and I am looking for advice, I have or in the process of adopting a TWH and he is a stallion but soon to be gelded. He is very happy and is so sweet, grazed while I brushed his matted tail. He is a rescue from a very sad situation, he is extremely under weight, but in the rescue he is gaining weight and becoming the horse I know he can be. He is a stallion but very unstallion like , he could care less at any time about mares or other horses around him. Very laid back , he will look at the other horses , mares as well, then get distracted and go back to what he was doing.
I noticed today while leading him, he is a little pushy and does try to walk and lead me, now I m short and slower but I know he can keep pace with me and not be pushy. I was wondering and hoping for some advice, on ground manners, where to start or to wait till he is back to full health. And how to go about it, he will let me pick up his hoofs, mess with almost any part of his body, I have not touched his privates or attempted.
Also on a side note his coat from his poor health is very poor and along with his mane and tail. His mane is almost...its just now starting to grow back unsure why it was all gone, he is 5 years old.
