    Building trust

    So since my surgery I am still in a sling and can't use my arm so everyday day when my boy takes his nap I go out and just sit with our colt Charlie. I was wanting to know if that alone was helping to build his trust with me or is there something else I can do.

    Yeah we brush him and have even worked with him to step on tarps and such, but he is a bit jumpy still with walking on things. I will take plastic bags and even cans out with me and just walk around the pin making noise with the stuff I take out there. He is very curious and will come to check it out, but if it gets to close to him he bolts. I don't halter him cause I can't risk him messing up my shoulder.

    No don't take the chance.as long as you keep moving around him and bringing things for him to get used to,you're doing about all you can with you limitations.just keep up the good progress and be careful.
