Coffeemomma- Fjords are SO amazing! So are Halflingers! But yes, it's amazing when the horse starts out as amazing! Can't wait for everything else to really get started! Lol. I'm so excited that I can't sleep because 'today' (it's already 4am! Lol) I'll be going to my favorite tack shop and picking up a fresh, brand new halter in HIS colors! Which is black lol. Who knew one could get SO excited over new halters! Lol. I feel like a doof! Hehe

SCMLeenie- I love love love his name too! I was actually thinking of calling him Remi, then Gambit (teehee), and a slew of other names related to such but finally just fell in love with 'Cajun' lol.

So glad you are enjoying your new horse,my newest came w/the name Remington (Remmy) & I kept it, but I also call him Legs, cause they're so long! I also love buying new stuff for him-I got real excited over his new brown/w black trim padded saddle pad that he needed because of his high wither. Just love playing w/him & seeing his face every morning & greeting me when I get home from work. Now if the rain would just quit!

Remmy is a good looking boy! And I miss the days I got to see my horses EVERY day just because they were in my back yard lol. Also, the rain has been horrid the past few days! It rained a few days ago that the ground stayed slosh for a while, then started up again (much lighter but still miserable) and my horses actually got farriered in the rain! It's raining today too so while I got to go tack shopping I can't go out and use the new stuff I bought until the weather gets better. Not to mention it's down right FRIGGID!

(picked up 2 new NICE halters, new crop since someone 'borrowed' mine and never returned it, a new lead rope since over the years I went from 10 to 2 somehow lol, apple treats for Cajun since they're his fave and I got peppermint last time lol, and a nice breast collar for Caddy that's neoprene and padded! They didn't have the saddle pad I wanted though so I'll be ordering that off line. Hardest part about that is picking what color I want! Black...or purple? Lol)

So today was AWESOME! Started off with some tyeing, and I don't think I heard him paw, dig, or otherwise throw a fit even once! He was a tad dancy during grooming, but it gave us a good few opportunities to teach him 'over' which he learned very fast. After that I showed off some of his minimal learning (and most of his personality) to my mom by working him in the round pen. It was a tad slick and he's too smart to do too much, though I did get a short canter out of him, and got him to go from a walk to a trot to a canter, and back down again. There were some difficulties between transactions and dirrection, but he got it after a while. I also worked on his backing up and leading a bit, and he did well at both. (Still a bit fast being led and tends to overstep you. Correcting this by making him back up when he does this and he caught on quickly that so long as he doesn't overstep, he won't go back, and, if he does overstep he steps back on his own). Also, I'm short and while trimming up his bridle path I stood on a step ladder that popped loudly because of my weight, and he twitched all over, but otherwise didn't spook. He's turning out to be even more laid back than I thought! I think that the few times his last owner tried to have him 'broke' it was too much too fast. He still shies A LOT if you go to put something on his back. I know one time that the idiot who 'tried' treated him like a bronch...and story has it that he proved to BE one!

Anyway, long post aside...here are some lovely pictures of him in the round pen! He seems to lean inward alot, but I'm happy to see a soft eye on him and his ear turned towards me. ^_^



















The last picture is of him and my mom, who fell into even more love with him after watching him worked for the first 'real' time. (more than just a circle or two on a lead rope) Also realized with all the pictures I took of him and my mom...he LOVES sticking his tongue out lol, AND, he's a ham...I said "Say cheese!" and EVERY time he'd perk his ears if I said it lol. Cracked me up.

Nice looking horse, terrible shame about the tail, I think it could have just taken more work and baby oil, or other things.

I hope you will give him a good fly sheet, with the wrap that goes under the belly and the tail protector.

Actually I'll be looking into some of that 'spot on' stuff that is like the flee stuff for dogs, but is fly and tick stuff for horses. I sold a horse to a lovely family about mid summer last year and they tried it on her and only had good things to say about it. So I'll probably do that with him as well as some fly spray. I don't really want to leave something on him 24/7 because he's in the pasture 24/7 and I might not be able to get out there daily and would just feel HORRIBLE if something happened that injured him x.x
