So they are defiantly off on their new life now!

oh yea they got new names a new home good food lots of love and even a bath to wash the old place off and feet done and everything within a week of me getting them

Twitch is so trusting I think he knows he won't ever have to go through it again but now i'm haveing to teach him "my space" when I pull up or walk up he runns to the gate and starts nickering at me and paceing and when I go in he is all in my hair and rubbing on me and likes to try to climb on my sholder he gets so excited and so eager to learn I try to teach him something new every time he catches one thing i'll add another were doing a combo trick it's a back up on command with no touching a hand shake (not pawing or strikeing but holding his leg up) and a nose to the ground I also don't touch him for that but I offer him a low treat for a command he is so smart even when I mix them up he gets them really easy

Rogue is calm and leary she trusts my husband and me but since she is his horse i'm letting them bond she is his first horse that is truly his he has worked with many others but they weren't his and my husband loves to take her and they just walk in the pasture bonding and getting close he brushes her and whispers to her and she is learning love

Not sure what that actually means but it sounds scary. You are doing so many thing right here, please do not fall into the mistake of excusing any inappropriate behaviour on their poor start.

For all of you the slate is wiped clean so expect them to keep your personal space right from NOW. It is very easy to make excuses and before you know what has happened you have a brat on your hands.

I started my filly under saddle at two and a half. I can't imagine starting a horse younger than two...

Keep up the good work <3

every time he tries to get on top of me I tell him down and make him back up a few steps and by sitting on my sholder I mean he will take his head and push down on me and act like he is trying to climb over me so I make him back up but he keeps wanting to do it I also have new pics and updates! I will post them and pictures shortly

What a wonderful thing you are doing for those precious horses! I can tell such a difference in the current photos that the sadness in their eyes is leaving, and they know they are loved....keep up the good work :)

ok updates time!

Today we placed the saddle on twitch again and just let him free roam with it sitting on him no cinch or anything just to let him feel it he walks so smooth he didnt even knock it off!
Also today twitch dropped looks like were going to be moving a little sooner than planned
If ypu own a stallion what age was yours when he droped? Im still trying to find out twitches age and his pics from today are



Twitch being a silly clown boy





Rogue has some big progress today we saddled her up and put a bridle on her and I sat on her back for about 5 minutes she was so scared she was shakeing like a leaf I would have gotton right off but I staid on and brushed her and loved on her till she relaxed and then got off we never walked just sat there she did good once she learned she wasent going to be hurt she still isent ready to ride but were working with her so when she is ready we wont have any problems

They are both looking so much better and healthier than when you first rescued them! Personally, I would not try to sit or ride until they are in full form - I think taking baby steps such as leading them around for a few minutes with a saddle (w/o a rider) is more than enough for now.....keep up the good work, and give them a carrot and a kiss from me :)
