So here is the hopefully one day magnificent Amadeus! He needs a TLC overhaul but I started a little today. For being completely untrained, he has been remarkably easy to get along with *holds breath*....Today I turned him out in a round pen and started a little "You are the horse, I am the human and I deserve a little respect" basic ground work such as walking along the round pen without turning around to change direction until I ask him to. He did SO GOOD! Every time he stopped, he would turn into the center, face me, and walk towards me like "Aren't I doing good? You can pet me now." I also brushed the front half of his body and was able to untangle his long mane which turned out to be silky and gorgeous. The vet is coming out again tomorrow to see how he is doing. I am sure this whole experience will go through MANY phases....some where he is an angel and others where I am going to be very frustrated with him...but so far so good because he has a very sweet disposition. It was so hard to get a picture of him because he kept following me around the round pen like a dog, I guess he wanted a close-up photo! I tried to get a picture of him picking his halter up off the ground with his teeth and flinging it in the air but he dropped it as soon as the camera came out. I will post updated pics as he progresses and gets healthier!! Thank you for all of your kind words in my other post about him Sorry the pics are so small, for some reason this was the largest size that would download on tPF, you can't really see him that well.
