Quincy’s current challenge is finding trust in people. Three months ago, Quincy didn’t like to be touched, but with patient work, his eyes have softened and now he even leans into being petted. He has received farrier care twice and was great for the farrier. We have moved Quincy’s paddock to the other side of the property. Our herd of fillies gets turned out to graze next right next to him. They run over to say hi and he’s always a chill boy.
Quincy is still a little bit reluctant to be caught and haltered, but he has improved enough that his trainer is experimenting with leaving his halter off when he’s out in his paddock. He also has been turned out with some of our regular sized horses and he does really well. Mostly just wants to hang out and graze in peace.
