But yay you got some progress with him :) Very nice, just keep it up and he'll get less weary and more curious to be around you!
That's funny you say that. "Well he can't see down there :P" That means a lot more than you realize. He stands at 16hh. I'm only 4'9. LOL. I wonder if my height has any bearing on things. I guess this is just one of those things with getting a horse with an unknown history. I'll do some more experiments with different people trying to get close to him, see if maybe I can pinpoint something that might give an answer why he acts this way. For all I know he may have only had male handlers. Who knows. But as for your other question... I have tried that, but between him going for fingers and me trying to avoid being bit, we're dancing all over the place. I will keep working with him on that too
. I"ve been doing pretty much what you've said to do, but the reassurance means alot. You have been very helpful, thank you so much.
