    Kevin

    Thank you all! I think I'm learning just as much as he is! I had a go at teaching him to slow down and speed up when lunging. So far I have discovered he listens to me much better without the pressure of the lunge whip, so I have thrown that out. I got him to walk going anti-clockwise, we...

    You learn something new everyday ! That sounds interesting though with the moon sign, I had never heard of it before. Although I know how the moon controls the tides, but I didnt know it had an affect on animals and plants. That is different, how would your vets normally castrate your horses...

    Wonky tooth?

    I guess the vet he meant that Ted's teeth aren't sharp therefore they shouldn't be cutting his cheek like my mare's teeth did. So he thought it could be an old ulcer or a sarcoid. The vet didn't really go much into depth in looking as he had 3 horses to geld that day, but I think Tenae wants...

    Wonky tooth?

    Thank you all for your replies, I'll pass it all on to Tenae. I thought it had been deleted or something because I couldn't find it in the part I posted, but then it popped up in here? There is no tenderness in the lump, it doesn't phase him when you touch it or put pressure to it. The lump is...

    Marsha, what do you mean by "scheduled by the moon sign" ?? Thanks Paula !! I found it very interesting to watch, the Vet also had a Vet student along with him, although he didn't take part in the actual procedure. He mainly prepped and observed. The vet would talk through what he was doing...

    Is Kevin a Mini?

    Thank you I was pretty happy with how it fitted on him, my first one was so out of proportion with a small tight nose band, long cheek pieces and a massive cheek piece. So I gave up, then I decided to have another shot at it the other day The flowers are paper flowers on a piece of wire My...

    Is Kevin a Mini?

    Haha, thank you! Kevin is definitely one of a kind, and every horse is in their own special way. We have been training in little baby steps, for my benefit and his Yesterday I got him to stand on some things for fun I also made him his own rope halter, I had only made 1 before that one...

    Is Kevin a Mini?

    Thank you all ! So I could say he is a Pony, Miniature pony, Small pony or Part Shetland? I have been calling him a Small pony to some visitors, although I had no clue what he actually was. Either way, hes still Kevin! I have photos of him today, I also measured him, he only came to 40...

    Is Kevin a Mini?

    Hello, I was just wanting to see what people's opinions on what Kevin is. He is around 41 inches? I will check his height properly tomorrow. And a mini is usually under 38 inches aren't they? But If his parents were miniatures does that make him a mini regardless? I have owned his mother she...

    Castrated the Boys

    Yeah, its like a weight lifted off my shoulders getting it over and done with. Oh really? I had my Shetland, Dusty gelded in 2008, he was the first one we got done. I refused to watch it haha. Although I was very happy with this vet. The one in 2008 was no where near as gentle with Dusty. The...
