So I didn't take a million pictures like I said I would. I got really busy... oops. I decided to take it easy with S today since he's still nervous. He likes to play hard to catch (which is why he's wearing his halter) so I'll be working on that for sure!! I caught him and untangled his mane this morning. Above is the before... looks are deceiving because there was a HUGE mat under there. It took me twenty minutes to get it out.
Here is after. Looks good!! He's so curious about everything.
Another after shot of his mane with his head up.
He is still missing his mom. He neighs to the boys constantly when they are out of sight.
I gave him the rest of the salt block and he licked on it for thirty minutes non-stop (I timed it)!!
My friend forgot to bring a block so I'm going to buy him one tomorrow and get a new one for my boys too. Take advantage of that work discount even though it's small hehe.
When I fed S I spent the whole time touching him all over his body. He flinches away when I reach for him and he startles when I first touch him. Once I'm touching him, he's totally fine. Hypersensitive dude!! I'll be doing a lot of desensitizing with this guy!! His response is so weird because he's never been abused or anything. Oh well I think with his natural curiosity that he will settle in and get over all of this. :)
On another note... anyone want to guess Chrome's due date??? Because I seriously have the world's first pregnant gelding! He's so FAT!!!!!
