If you follow this thread you will get to watch Flap Jack being trained. I just bought Flap Jack on July 14th and he is a cremello/perlino grade 14hh pony. He has an awesome mane and tail that I hope will stay long and get longer! I was told that he bought from a kill pen at one point and has had some not so great owners.
A lady had owned him for a while then lost her job in June so sold him to my old barn owners boyfriend. He worked with him 3 times and the first time with a saddle only on his back didnt go so well (Bucked and almost kicked the guy). He then left the BO and all of his stuff and she couldnt afford him so sold him to me.
Walked him around and then I tryed picking up his feet.
BO sprayed him with fly spray and he was afraid
Walked him around
Put saddle pad on him and made it fall off of him (over side, butt, and head)
Fly sprayed him and he did awesome
Gave him a bath, and then he rolled and got more dirty than he was before
Put a saddle pad on him and then my saddle and then I slowly did the cinch on the saddle and he took it like a champ. I was almost wondering if he was already broke . I tried getting him to trot or walk on the lounge line but he didnt want to, I think im going to need a wip.
Somehow he must of learned that if he step on his lead rope he has to step off of it and not freak out.
If you want to know how he got his name (I chose it). His bottom lip you can make it flap and play with it and he doesnt care. So I was thinking flappy but flap jack came to mind. His original names were dusk and sarco.
