I think we have been seeing siblings, they are both around two years old and always in the same area, but one has a black muzze and the other a brown. The brown stays put and watches us, where the black bolts as soon as he sees you. I took some pictures last time out, but my camera says "unreconizable format" when I try to view them :/

Thanks for your kind words! If you searcjh back at some of the other threads I have started, you can really see how far we have come! I think that I am kucky beacuse this horse really is a gentle soul with great ground manners, so that has helped alot, and gaining his confidence and mine has been the biggest help to our progress. There are a few posters on here that have been great mentors, and I really can't praise enought CA's book Establishing Respect and Control on the Ground, and Lessons well learned--I don't take this stuff as gospel, but have taken some things and really tailored them to meet my needs; a few things that have really become paramount into our training and riding are:

*Exaggerating while teaching, and fine tuning to make the horse light and responsive
*Allowing the horse to make mistakes (not micro-managing) then correcting, I really think horses want to do the right thing, and this is how they learn
*making the right thing easy and the right thing hard--when blits didnt want to cross a creek or mudhole, he had to work! Backing, circles, sometimes a vigerous lunge on the spot
*being black and white with the horse, letting him know what I wanted and didnt want so he could really understand; at the same time, horses are creatures of habit and don't want to do the wrong thing, they do what they have been allowed to do and what has gotten them what they want.

I have to admit my mindset and way of thinking has changed 10-fold over the past couple of years!

Congrats for working through all those challenges your horse presented. It's not an easy task, but oh, so rewarding. He looks like a very nice horse. Thank you for sharing your success. Hope you have many happy miles together.
