New News on Apollo!

So I moved him to my girlfriends today and he is doing alot better. We got a halter on him today! And you can just walk up and pet him now. Rub his head neack and sholders. But that's all so far. I tried putting him in the crossties but he rared up a few times then I calmed him down and brushed him. If he keeps make good progress before to long I was going to put him in a small pin in the field so he can stretch his legs. Do you guys think that would be a good idea?? As long as I can still catch him at will?

Also I got some pictures! Ill post them for you all later

So long as the fence around the pen is adequate to keep him in, it should be fine to go ahead. I would only turn him out though if the pen is made from panels or wood or pipe. I would not turn him out if the pen is contained by wire. Make sure that it is nothing that he can jump or get tangled in and everything else will be fine. Although, you might want to consider that he will probably be a lot harder to get close to in a large area at this point. He has figured that in a small area, there is no escape but if he has room to run, there will be no getting close. Good luck.

Hmm, good point. I was thinking of waiting atleast another week or so actually until he got to know me more.

Thanks smrobs :)

He is definitely a cutie. And I can tell you that Mustangs make great saddle horses.

That is one of mine in my avatar.

Yay for success! Now that you have him moved, just be sure to keep an eye on his behavior, make sure he's eating, ect. Sometimes there can be problems after a new move. Most barns wait about a week or two for them to settle in before trying to much new stuff.

He's a real cutie! Congrats!

Thanks free_sprt. So far he is till eating fine. Which is good. The only thing the move seemed to do is make him more friendly lol

I ended up putting him in the field today and he let me catch him pretty easy. Does anyone have tips on teaching him how to lead?

Use a rope halter lol biggest tip I have. There's lots of things that I have learned along the way, but I've got a cold and don't feel like typing a bunch. Ill have to get back to you later. Oh and carry a short crop.
