Chrome's Monthly Progress Report

Date: 2-19-11
Age: 21 months
Height: 15hh ¼in (60.25inches)
Height Gain: He grew half an inch.
Weight: Approximately 830lbs.
Weight Gain: Approximately 20lbs.

Progress: Yay, he made fifteen hands! I did a bunch of clicker training. I did work on hindquarter yields like I wanted to. I also worked on head lowering and lateral flexion, which I think would be considered softening. I'd say this month was a success. We didn't do much walking, but we had lots of fun with the clicker training and growing apparently. :)

Goals: I want to continue working on clicker training. I won't put anything specific because there's no telling what I will decide I want to work on. I would like to get some more walking done and maybe a bath. I guess that's all for this month since I don't know what the weather will be like.

And for fun here is a video we took this morning of Chrome working on smile. :)


  1. That is kind of goofy, but learning new tricks is always fun.


  2. I see you gave him a jackpot for an extra big smile. See, I'm learning. You weren't kidding when you said that book I got is repetitive. Yeesh! I've been skipping past the parts where my horses don't need work, but I'm still reading.

  3. I can't believe how much he's grown since I last checked in. Love the smile :)

  4. Yay well done, he's doing great with the smiling I love it! :)
