So, a pony that my mum and I ride regularly at my yard has seriously bad self esteem.
He was injured when he came here about 3 years ago, and he was off for 2 years. He's now back in work, but terrified of everything. I mean EVERYTHING.
Cup on a fence, dent in the ground, shiny fences, you name it.
Until now, we've been going slowly, letting him sniff and come close to everything.
However, I'm thinking that we should start taking a more 'no nonsense' approach to it, just plowing on past things, ignoring him if he gets scared.
Oh, and eyecandy cos he's cute as a button!
