So, today I finally got a chance to come home and see my horses and such..I'll be here til Sunday but then I go back to working a ton so I wont be able to come home again for a while and then school starts...so needless to say I haven't been able to work with my horses like...at allll :( Saddd!
Anyway, Scooter, my old guy, is fine. He's awesome!
But Hunter on the other hand..he's 8. Well, I started working with him when he was 2 1/2-3 and he was TERRIBLE when I first got him then after me working with him a ton he turned into an AWESOME horse very gentle and eager to learn..then I tore both of my ACLs a little bit apart and wasn't allowed to ride for about a year and a half all together. He still was pretty good when I was finally able to get back on him. I worked with him as much as I could but then got busy with work and now I'm in college and ugh. No time :(
So, lately I've been having problems with catching him. Today was just terrible...I guess yesterday the farrier came out and he took off on my dad and then today I wanted to give him a bath but he wouldn't let me catch him. We have a HUGE pasture so I'm just wondering if anyone has tips on how to teach a horse not to take off when you get a halter out??
Needless to say I didn't get to give him a bath but the little rascal loves the hose. I was trying to wash scooter and he kept putting his head over Scooters back and trying to take the hose. Then after they were out eating in the yard and I tried to water the flowers and he kept trying to take the hose from me again!
Heres a video of it :)
