Our walk!

We went for a walk today! Zoh was SO good! By the time we got half way round he'd become lead file and I actually had to hold him back! I think he was like utterly amazed there was all of this life and living going on around him which he didn't know about. I thought he was gunna be a bit of a pleb, but he was a total lead horse! It was awesome and I would honestly feel safe enough walking him out alone he was that calm!

We had a brilliant clicker session with him and Helen on friday (hey Helen!) and he was so so good! I'mma do some more work with him tomorrow, hopefully, and see if we can add to what we know! I want to get some pictures of him doing his concentrating thing ;)

Zoh saw the farrier on Saturday, he didn't really well even though he was insanely jumpy to begin with but he settled down okay and hopefully he'll see him gain when Twig has his shoes back on!

Walking out with him for the first time this weekend I hope, providing it isn't wet.

He's really enjoying his mush w/ the supplement and he has TOTALLY chilled out which is aw-sum.

Gotta love his cute little face!

Oh, and that is "Uncle" John aka the farrier lol

Zoh keeps getting choke ¬.¬ so I've resorted to double netting AND soaking his haylage and his pathetic amounts of pony nuts are now turned to mush which he doesn't appreciate!

Tonight however, I gave him his dinner w/o his haynet in the stable and poked and prodded him until he ate it which he finally did and he seemed to like the taste his new supplement added to it! It's got a fair amount of copper in it which is something I was suggested I get for him for the pink around his eyes. He splooshed and mulched his way through it then when he was done he got his hay net which he tucked into even though he was frustrated he couldn't get a lot out!

Tomorrow I want to see if I can get him to cooperate and pay attention long enough to do some clicker, or I might just walk him around the first field or walk him to the road because he still jumps 6ft when he sees a car lol

He's a hell of a lot calmer in the stable now and he lets me brush all down his legs, his face and even piss about with his fetlocks :D

I love my pony <3 x

Happy Birthday Zoh!

Zoh's two today :D

For his birthday he got....a pear. He doesn't like conventional fruits! I think he had a good day, he spent the marjority of it running around the field like a bleedin' lunatic though!

He was down the field and he heard us coming with Ellie and came barrelling up the field at about 90 miles an hour and set the others of and Trevor Stone was in his fields next door with his wolfhound puppy which has appeared out of nowhere and chased the horses across the field until it saw Ellie and ran away lol.

He met some traffic today in the pen by the road, he was fine until Jaffa started to be a pleb and race around -.-'

We also did a little bit of clicker but he was far more interested in chewing my fingers than listening to me lol

Hmm, I brushed his fetlocks today and he keeps overreaching so he's got several scabs from it which I need to keep an eye on!
