Out with the boys...

15 year old 14hh sorrel Peruvian Paso gelding by Regalo de Dios, foaled June 1991. Amigo was gelded when he was 3 and was always easy to handle up until the last few years, where he has not been handled at all. SAFE is assisting his owners in finding him a new home.

Out with the boys...

I turned everyone out at lunch today - it was warm and sunny out and I felt bad with them all contained in their little paddocks. I wasn't intending to let Mi Amigo out, as I'm pretty nervous about being able to catch him when it's time for everyone to be put away. However, he was really antsy when he saw everyone else going out. So, I took the plunge. I let him out too! :shock:

He's getting along with everyone really well so far. He's definitely the submissive one. I haven't tried to approach him yet, hopefully I will be able to catch him. *sigh* :)

Woohoo! I was fairly easily able to catch Mi Amigo and put him away this evening! I see a huge difference in his confidence level and his "thinking" side of his brain. He reacted at first out of fear, but you could see the wheels spinning and him making the conscious decision to trust! Woohoo! We're on the road now, baby! :D

Way to go Mi Amigo! He looks good wandering around your pasture. :)
