    rugging

    Not that I want to all the time but there have to be times that you need to
    We have a rescued meat horse ,he's 2 now very nervous a freind got one and it's taken 7 months to even touch him ,retreats really fast to a corner stands shivers ,he's 3 (she's backed horses and brought on foals before but he's really strange) ,ours is better ,different kettle of fish ,he get bolshy ,he tends to bite if he's nervous ,he was stabled with turn out during the day but has had to go out 24/7 ,due to livary shutting down in the summers here ,because of his x and were we live and for things like traveling he is going to have to be rugged ,arrived here unrugged ,my daughter could do it with a sweat rug in the stable ,rugging every day and then taking it off ,but they been trying in the feild and he snapped the lead rein the other day ,if you get his rug out now he just rears and plays up ,i think we'll start taking it down we he gets his feed and see how it goes ,any other suggestions ,in a lot of respects he's coming along well ,he's ok to lead now ,will walk out ok ,but he seems to have really gone backwards since he's been living out
