Ben is steadily gaining weight and winning the hearts of our volunteers! He is a sweet boy and very smart and willing to work. We are just lightly working him at liberty and adding a little bit of groundwork off the rope halter. He needs to gain more weight before we can ask much of him but for right now we are working on simple foundation things and some desensitizing. He is a big boy so it will be important that he has very good manners for his future adopter. He is already proving to be very kind. As a younger thoroughbred, he does like to play and it’s important that he is allowed to get that extra energy out during turn out and play time. After he’s had a chance to blow off some steam, he is very calm and easy to work with.
