Growing Up Gray

Grayson

Grayson was a dubious Facebook purchase bought as a companion for Bodhi in August 2015 as a yearling colt. His origin is cast in lore, but he is supposedly a cross between a buckskin appendix mare and a gray Lusitano stallion. He needed a home and some TLC, Bodhi needed a buddy, and I thought what a fun project! He had very minimal handling when we got him, but quickly warmed up to people and has turned into a regular pest.

For the last 6 months we have been working on the basics: leading, yielding to pressure, picking up feet, bathing, standing tied. I plan to continue to work on these basic skills, and basic manners for the next few months. I will pick up on his training at around 2 and 1/2. For now, I want him to work on being a good equine citizen and have fun being a colt.
