Updates on Beau

So about a year ago, I posted a thread about my new mini foal, and just thought I would put a couple of updates on him a year later.
So he is starting to get the general idea of ground driving in a halter, and has been doing really well! Also I am trying to teach him how to set up for a halter class, which he does really well also, but he likes to "over-stretch" on his own, so we're working on that, so please excuse the "over-stretched" picture. Also I am starting to clip the fuzzy boy today so I will put that up once I am done.
PS-please excuse the crappy choice in footware

My pretty little black "sheep"


My new breed "Miniature black lippizanner"


And of course the "over-stretched" look

Fantastic fuzzy boy. Can't wait to see the clipped pictures. It's such a huge change. They go from looking like sheep to actually looking like little horses. I love when it finally gets warm enough to clip.

I'm jealous because you are way more dedicated than I am. I have 2 minis that need to get back into driving training and I've been lazy this summer. I was all about it this winter then the warm weather hit and I found other things to do. I think I'm going to head out to bring my tack in for a clean. Thanks for the inspiration. Can't wait to see your boy driving!

Can't wait to see him clipped out. I bet he's hot!

Minis aren't supposed to be stretched out (only the Modern Shetlands are). Squaring him up would be fine.

Handsome boy.

He's looking good despite the hooves. You'll want to get those checked out.

It takes couple blades to get a good clip. Get a couple more and use lots of cooling spray.

Good luck.

Keep us updated! I am interested in seeing him set up properly, clipped (or shed out completely), and with trimmed hooves (which are done as you mentioned.)

Good luck with him!

I highly suggest showing him in small local shows as well.
