I know its been a few days but time for new pictures!
Also updates rogue is getting her teeth floated monday it was supposed to be last week but got delayed but we have the money and getting it done Monday and we think twitch may be a saddle bred I think I found his original owner I'm not sure I sent them pictures of him and politly asked but have not received a response i'm hopeing it is him but anyway here is pictures!
Oh and I know there will be people thinking about the chain on twitches leg he has been pawing when eating but has started striking when eating and the property owner made us do something because he was getting destructive it's only on when he eats and comes rite off but stops him from pawing
Yea he was getting agressive about it I may get a video later maby someone can offer a better solution he got my foot the other day and he is small enough it didn't break bone but if he was full grown it probably would have and I can't risk a broken foot those are hard to work 2 jobs with I really could use some tips to stop this
If he's pawing the food and you have time to stand with him while he's eating, you can take a whip (dressage or lunge whip is best) and stand with him as he eats. Every time he raises his hoof to paw, give him a firm smack and a 'NO!' on the leg or chest and make him back up from the food. My filly was doing this and dumping her food which wasted a LOT of it, so I took a whip out and did this. It only took a few times before she stopped completely and I haven't seen her try to paw since.
