    Default Sherlock's All White on the Night

    Bobby. Born 9/4/13
    Arrived 13/11/14

    He hasn't had much done with him at all. He went to the foal show last year where he stood champion!

    He was lead in to the yard today, he was mega!
    In to his stable where he quickly settled. We then learnt about being tied up. He broke off once and just wondered to the next Haynet! Typical cob!
    I then gave him a brush which he loved. He wasn't even bothered by mane and tail spray
    Then I tried a rug on him (not sure if he's ever worn one before) it was a 6'3 and it was only slightly too big around his chest, so I have a 6' here I'm going to try on him tomorrow! Might be a touch big but I think 5'9 will be too small :O

    Plaited his mane to train it all over to the correct side. Quickly took about 2" off the bottom of his mane with my blade, didn't flinch!

    Anyway some photos from today


    He's not bothered about ziggy either

    Well I probably jinx'd myself!!! Found Bobby with Ziggy this morning ggggrrrr
    Anyway he was easy to catch and bring in. Settled immediately in his stable and he spent a little while in there just chilling.
    We did bathing today which he was great with, we also popped a bit in, no fuzz and he did on in hand training also I made a start on shortening that mane!!! He was a very good boy!!
    He was a bit bolshy to lead back to the field but we just circled every time he disrespected my space! OK it took a little while to get to the field but hey! It's only time!!!

    Yesterday he just chilled in the field, this actually was a big achievement for him! He has escaped twice although I think the second time he rolled and took the fence out as he was stood within his fencing just it was down.

    We built fort knox and he almost instantly relaxed (I know that sounds weird!!!) he just wondered off and grazed instead of standing by the bottom fence looking for ziggy. He stayed in his fencing all day and he was SOOOO relaxed when I got there yesterday afternoon it was lovely to see! He has started coming to me when I get there. So not much of progress in the learning stakes but when it comes to his happiness I'm much happier that he's happy now!!!!
    Anyway some photos

    Still not got the hang of selfie's....








    Bless him

    We have our first show tomorrow! So today will be spent getting Bobby back to sparkling white again!!!

    He's been around the village twice now and not bothered at anything at all! He is staying in his electric fencing which is great as we were having real issues with that!

    Will update once we are back from the show tomorrow!!!

    He is looking really well, he has fairly chunked out! How did he get on at the show?
