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!:D 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.

And to tremor thanks, I do understand that. Haha unfortunately he just likes to stand like that because he's cool :) anyways here's some clipped pics :D unfortunately my blades went dull before I quite finished but still much better!

Someone needs a pedicure! o.o

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.

Thanks again guys for the advice and actually farrier came out right after I posted on here, so were all set to go! :)

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.
