Today was the first day I was able to approach Morgan in the pasture and touch his shoulder! There are three other horses in his pasture. I got him and one other separated from the \\\"runner\\\" in the group. I then approached the other more confident horse and then Morgan and he didn\\\'t even try to leave.Big improvement!
This was my first time working with Morgan. He was very nervous about me approaching him, so I soon discovered that I needed to get the stick and approach him with that. I used the stick as an extension of my arm to just get him use to touch. I touched him all over and at his feet. He did not like his back legs being touch at first and kicked out. I stopped touching when he stopped kicking. I was able to get a halter on him and lead him. He was nervous but did well.-S. Yonas
Today was the first time Morgan has had a rope halter on. Rally only the second time he has ever been worked. I began by asking him to fallow a feel while he was in the pen and I was on the out side. I then went in the pen with him and had him walk from corner to corner with me. I then opened the pen and walked a lap around the pasture. He did awesome! After letting him just hag out for a bit I went to take the halter off and this took most of the time. He gets very uneasy once you move past his eye. He attempts to bite you as soon as he\\\'s uncomfortable. I finally got the halter off, petted his shoulder and walked away.
