Well, not really wild. In this case, it's a bratty miniature horse who enjoys biting!
That's right, I began training Cowboy today! He's only had a blanket on him once, maybe twice at the most, and that's been quite awhile, so while my sister and her four kids, and mom, were outside and Cowboy was out grazing, I decided to start back up and officially start his training as the warm weather begins.
After that, he refused to let anyone close. I walked up to him to comfort him a little, and he ran off, head in between his legs. Finally, I caught him again and grabbed his halter and made him settle down. After a couple minutes of holding him there and talking to him, I let him back off to graze. I ended up getting a scratch on my hand from him going nuts, but other than that, it was a painless experience. :)
One of the kids tried to run up to him-We're still teaching them horse safety!-and he ran as fast as his tiny legs would allow!

He finally found a peaceful place near his favorite human, AKA my mom!
And then mom surprised him by clipping a lead on him and walking him back to his stall for dinner....he wasn't pleased at the sight of a lead, but soon perked up when he saw his grain.
I didn't get to visit the Redman today, no time. :( I'm hoping to go out and train/ride every other day starting this Summer....As y'all know I have to have a ride, and my mom said she'd start dropping me off now that she trusts Red and I to be safe alone. :)) So, look forward to that. I plan on using trot poles to improve Red's gait soon.
