Tom deworms himself.

All I have to do is show the tube to him, he grabs it, and I push the plunger and then wrestle it back from him. He is a freak horse who loves his dewormer...

He got jealous of Satin(who is terrified of the dewormer, and is a work in progress...) when I had it in front of her and started bucking and kicking. So I called him and he walked over happy as can be and clamps his front teeth around the tube and I pushed the plunger and wrestled it away, and he swallowed it.... Wierd. Then he was happy and stood there like a good boy...

HAH My first pony was like that. He only got a half a tube of dewormer, so we had set the rest down next to the fence. I have never in my life seen another horse run, take the wormer, adn crush the canister to get all the apple flavor out faster.

My mom's filly is almost three. When she was broke she never bucked. She has amazed us. It only takes her a few minutes to figure anything out, and at this young age I would be willing to put anybody on her back. She doesn't throw fits about anything, and the fit she does throw includes standing there staring at something. She responds beautifully to leg cues and very slight rein pressure. She amazes me everytime she is ridden. She can already be ridden by my 9 year old brother. (which is good because she is little so we are working on weight loss before riding her very long anywhere) She has an inate trust in humans.
