"Sculpting" a Yearling's Neck?
|waresbear ||04-04-2013 08:43 PM |
You can put a neck sweat on him & lunge him, other than that, it's his confo, it's the way his long neck comes out at the top of his shoulder.

Yeah that's what I was thinking about his confo, his neck ties in a little odd at his withers. But then again, some of that could be the lack of proper muscling. I don't wanna lunge him at such a young age and I think a neck sweat would make his neck even scrawnier. Hmmm... :/

I dunno, I think Lily could give Henny a run for his money with the yearling giraffe neck xD
I back Lily up hills. Every time she "gives" her head into her chest and rounds up her back, I release. It helps build the topline/base of the neck. Now she's very contientious about "dropping" or "giving" her head at pressure on the leadrope.

LOL! Henny is not alone! I soooo wish we had hills here, cause I'd be doing that in an instant. Too bad the land is flat in coastal Texas. :/ My dad has land in Kempner and it is literally a gently sloping hill. Wish I could used that place! Minus the cactus and tarantulas. :lol:

Is Henny gelded? I can't quite remember!

Strapping works pretty well. Though, I've never done it with a yearling before.
|Kayella ||04-04-2013 10:17 PM |
Yes, he was gelded in January.
What is strapping? Never heard of that term before.

his neck is set on that way. when he muscles out , in time, it'll be less noticeable. Be patient for him to grow up and fill out. Horses at that age are really awkward looking.
:shock: noooooooooooo!!! Hes a yearling-- if you go ta doin things that youd do on a developed horse its askin for trouble! Its best to wait till hes mature to start worryin about things like that.. in my opinion.
