~Indigo Update Thread~

Since I have so many Pleasant people willing to follow Indigo's progress.
I thought I would make him an update thread, so I am not throwing threads in every which way and direction !

So today, he has gotten a much more stronger nicker ( he learnt it off the foals) But he's working on it lol!
I've found out that LOTS of hay really distracts him from cribbing, and he has become so strong that he can practically pull a post out of the ground ! So, hopefully we will have our 60' corral set up soon !

He really is eager for his oats and pellets, rather pushy at times, but we are working on that and but other than that an absolute gentleman, Throws his head sometimes, when he wants his oats lol.

I checked him a few minutes ago and he decided he wanted to lay down ! <3 that's a rather good sign for right now :) At least I know he is comfortable here.

So far, he pricks his ears back but their natural position is kind of laid back lol ! Soon enough, soon enough

Looks like he's settling in. Maybe you could post some pictures to get a little time line going.

^ I defintially will !
Im hoping to get a video of his nickering attempts lol its so cute ! :)

He is a bit Antsy, but I guess im going to have to expect that since he is a Tb X.
There were times when leading him around where he would throw his head up.
Lots of new photos coming up, I didnt tie him up today, due to what happened yesterday and he is abit wary of the fence now. Me thinks we will have to train to stand still lol.

Sounds like he is doing great!! But what happened yesterday with the fence?? Does he have a pull back problem?
    11-06-2009, 03:19 PM
He went and lowered his head, when I was just setting up the tie, apparently the electric fence was on (oops -.-' )
He pulled back and broke the lead rope (im not concerned about the lead rope, they are cheap)
And just trotted off, but my hand flung back and hit it and I couldnt feel it for more than 30 minutes, he's pretty hesitant about electric fences.
Regardless, so im going to have to wait till I can get the round pen set up and see how that goes.

^ But to add, he does have a tendancy to try and walk off when tied and pull back abit. So eekk, when he isnt loose like the farrier had him tied.

We have those o rings mounted on the fence in some places for tying. I try to avoid tying my horse to the fence unless its somewere really deep in the ground or cemented in. Does he have a safely halter on? That's very important. Try just draping the lead over the fence if you can, make him stand for a little while and then let him go. Gradually work up to keeping him tyed long and longer. Its important to make sure they don't associate it with anything bad, otherwise you have a 1000lb horse trying to get the heck outta there. He might not be fully settled in yet (forget how long ago you got him.)

Lol yes, I will work on it, very slowely, thank you :)
I've had him since the 31st of october.

He got wormed yesterday :) he didnt like having around his mouth cleaned but after awhile he took it.
Today, he got moved to the round pen, with alot more room etc, but its fustrating me because he is still cribbing, I feel like im just going to start crying and no matter how much I try to explain to my brother about it, he doesnt get it across.
My dad doesnt understand very much.

~Thats my update for today !~
