Yaaaay ^.^

Yay, Zoh let me pick up his hind feet :D :D

Every time I've tried before he's jumped and moved away, which is to be expected, but we've been doing a lot of work with him and it's paid off! :D

Haha, he gave us an "aerial display" this morning when he got over excited going out to the field, he moved two steps away from me and catapaulted himself into the air like he was on a trampoline and his feet must've been level with my hips! I cannot wait to jump him.

We got him his first rug today :D It's chocolate brown with a red trim and he looks so so smart. I want to take a picture of him in itbefore he gets it grossly dirty!

Helen: Check this out!!/group.php?gid=82721176571
I want to take Ellie up there to do it...fancy coming with?! It'll be AWESOME!

Love ya x

Things we could do we couldn't do before!

- Put a headcollar on without having a hissy fit
- Have the leadrope draped over his neck
- Have the leadrope flicked over his neck so it curls under
- Have a surcingle on
- Have (Twiglet's) Newmarket on
- Have (Twiglet's) Newmarket on with a surcingle holding it on
- Pick up both front feet
- Brush him all over
- Brush the inside of his back legs
- Drape my arms over his back
- Clean wounds
- Put antiseptic on
- Play around with his tail
- Rub his face with a towel
- Brush his face
- Have my hand on his nose from the other side
- Have a leadrope on his belly
- Have a leadrope round his chest
- Back up when I ask him to in the stable
- Walk AROUND gates (You'd think that would be simple!)
- Come to the gate every night!
- Walk out to the field alone
- Far far less jumpy with strange noises

This might not seem like a lot or seem pretty basic but he's never had anything like this done before, he's doing SO well and he's only been here nearly two weeks! He's so cute <3

Doing well

Zoh's settled well and he's a lot calmer now, getting the hang of routines. In the morning I groom him and turn him out, then at night I groom him again, he gets his dinner and I lift both front feet. I need to work on sacking out his back legs but that'll come in time.

He's doing really well, simple things like stroking his muzzle and patting him are now okay and he met the broom for the first time :P

He's doing awesome and I hope to do some clicker with him later in the week :)

Zohan arrived here todaaaaaay! He's settled in his stable well (I recently checked on him en route home from work) and he was stood fast asleep ^.^

He's super super cute but waaaaay skittish. But that's an Arab for you lol.

He was calm enough to let me brush his legs today and tomorrow when he comes in I'm going to pick out his front feet.

He's so sweet, but a nibbler! It's all so exciting though ^.^ I can't wait to do some proper training with him.

Ignore my stupid face in the picture -.-'
