He's still a cute baby.He cracks me up. He'll come up and do something he knows isn't acceptable, all the while mouthing, "I'm a baby I'm a baby, don't hurt me!" Do all babies do that? I figure he'll grow out of it in a year or so.
His mama on the other hand, she didn't have me laughing today. I feel like she may be more than I have the patience for. Don't get me wrong, she is NOT a bad girl. But she shuts down when she's worried. Just closes her eyes and stands there. Which requires great patience. My gut reaction is to startle her back "awake" but that's what not to do. I need to wait her out, show her it's not scary, and build her confidence. And find some more info on how to train a horse like her. I'm going to rent the Parelli horse behavior DVDs. I know there's some good info there. Any other suggestions?
