I have been working the horses consistently over the past couple of weeks and they have really settled down. I am convinced Tucker is more relaxed and found his place in the herd. Fortunately I am the leader.
When I first got him he was pushy and always trying to be in front, now when I walk them to the pasture or go fetch them for dinner, he follows right behind me and doesn’t put his nose past my shoulder. I don’t even put a halter on him when they come down from the field.
It is interesting to me to see the changing dynamics unfold the more time I spend walking and working with them.
Thanks for all the info and perspective,
