The last few months have been hard ones. I couldn't catch Charlie anymore. I would spend 1 and a half hours just to come up to him and touch him for a few seconds! He was a spoiled, rotten brat!!! Which isn't surprising with him having a first time horse owner:) He had no respect for me and thought he could boss me around. I didn't know what to do. We finally decided to build a small enclosure for him so he couldn't run away as easily. I got him moving around until he submitted to me and then caught him easily. The next day, my sister walked up to him and just put the lead rope easily over his head. Before I couldn't pick out his hooves. Today I spent almost two hours with him. I picked up his hooves and he didn't struggle once! He also stood great for me when I tied him up. Before he would struggle. He isn't perfect but he is still improving. I still have to chase him around the pen but he is getting better with being caught. I lunge him and go out with him almost every day, now that I can catch him. Any opinions with things I could do with him to make him better and know that I am boss? Another thing I should point out is that when I walk up to him he usually kind of leans his body weight away from me and almost starts walking off. What should I do to allow me to walk up to him without him starting to walk away? Thanks
