I am here to update a little. the owners of the horses claimed them, verified they was theirs then agreed to sell them to us so we got all 3 for $175. the 2 babies, are not twins.. born 1 week apart and are 14 months old. they have the same dad ( a throughbred) and different moms. We have done a lot of work with them and the smallest baby, we are getting somewhere with.. she now, lead walks, stops, backs up, lifts feet.. the other baby is more stubborn.. We did get a halter on her and can catch her and put a lead on her.. she walks with the lead and LOVES baths.. but is very pushy and demanding.. if not given her way, starts to act out. we are learning as well as she is so we have a guy working with us working with her. he is really good and she listens to him very well, so I am sure her pushyness with us is something we are doing wrong. she will walk with me very well, but if I try to treat her, she becomes demanding and pushy to get more treats even when I do not offer.. so I have been leaving the treats out of it until our time together is coming to an end for the moment.. then I treat and release. she has finally started licking her lips and yawning when around me (from my understanding that means she is giving in).. but like today, after working with her for 30 minutes, I hosed her down (which she loves and is always upset when I stop), I gave her her treats and went to rub my hand on her shoulder (backish area) and she threw her head back, screamed at me, and turned to kick.
I just really hope my learning with her is not going to do more harm to her (mentally).. she is definately much better than 2 weeks ago when she was biting and kicking everytime we came near. but I also think removing her from the bigger horses is helping alot too. the 2 babies are in a pasture together and the rest are in another. any thoughts?? also, I am going to post pictures now that we legally own them.. so let me figure that out and I will post them here as well!
