He still doesn't have a name yet. I have many to decide between but I know that his name will be important so I am searching for just the right one. I have decided on a Hebrew name again but hopefully one that will not be mispronounced like Azania was :)
He is nice minded and remembers everything. I play with him in the roundpen and he faces right up and lets me rub on his face. He is not a one person horse because he allows other people immediately to do anything that I have done first. I play with the rope, tossing it on him and wrapping him up in it. He kicks at it a little when it is behind his butt. He seems to understand when something he does is not getting a release and he quickly gives me good answers. Look mom, when I get nervous with the rope I face up and get quiet. GOOD BOY! I am able to halter him today and it only takes a short while to convince him that it is okay. I have a twenty foot rope on the halter and teach him to lead, well, somewhat...... He resists but doesn't make much drama. Then I teach him that the brush is a good thing. I am able to brush his mane (he loves it) brush his neck, and shoulders (he thinks its nice) and then brush his hip (he holds his breath but seems to really enjoy the touch). That is the end of our session and I send him home to eat.
