Update on cherokee!

Since I brought Cherokee home 3 or so weeks ago she has been doing great, she has gained a little weight not as much as I would like but hey I was told since she is a yearling she wont gain to quickly, and I have since gotten her over her fear of halters, taught her how to lunge, you now can walk right up to her and pet her most of the way down her body, her hooves have been done she has gotten all of her shots and been coggins tested YAY EIA free, but hse had to be sedated for it and I wouldn't have even done it had it not been for her hooves, I would have liked to have her gentled more before I had to do all of it, Paloma for the most part has stopped with the aggressive feeding times yay, and all in all I think Cherokee and I are doing well together considering I have never trained a horse before, I have been using David Lee Archers methods on training horse look him up on you tube he is an old fashioned Cowboy but his methods work. Oh yeah I have halter and lead broke Cherokee, so for all those people who said I couldn't do it I am well on my way to DOING it ima attatching a pic of Cherokee I can't see much difference in her weight gain could someone critique her progress? Thanks!

She's a little thin, but not desperately so...she's nice and shiney, so she must be pretty healthy now.

Glad to hear she is making progress training wise...just stick to what is working, and don't get too discouraged on days that she seems to 'back paddle'; she's a baby, so she will go through more than just physical growth spurts...she's growing mentally as well, and there will be days she will just seem to 'forget' what she's learned, or seem to forget that you are a friendly being, that kind of stuff...but it's all normal; just don't let her forget that you are her leader, and those days will go a lot smoother.
