Harley, my sweet, adorable rogue. That is him , he is sweet, and good minded but he does have a bit of a diffferent temperament that Comet and Quinn, or Justus, or... not to say he wont come around, and hasn't already,but he does have a streak of something different, something I havent seen since, well since really, his grand sire , Chips was a foal, and that a long time ago. Phoenix was a little this way too but the old man was the one. He never throws any really big stuff at you , just tries little things, constantly , always thinking always trying. He is now standing nicely every time to be haltered, and accepts whoa and pressure nicely , but ... well I will let the pictures tell you , I may have won the battle , but I have a war yet to fight LOL.
Its OK wars with these guys are never too bad , and so far I always win.
Maybe I can get some better pictures of him leading over the weekend , martin snapped these quickly on the way by for me ,but taking pics is not so much his thing so I didn't push my luck.
Hoping to get some more time in with Harley as the weather is warming up, maybe more than just a few min a day leading him in for supper , and soon enough he will come around and be the sweet gentle soul I know he is capable of being.For now(an always when working with horses) I will remain alert .
