Becoming a Solid Citizen

Rocky has been coming along really well.  Once he healed up from gelding and having his wolf teeth extracted, we turned him out with the herd (after checking with the vet to make sure he would be ok around the mares).  No studdish behavior or even any aggressive behavior at all.  The introduction to the herd was a total non-event.  Maccabee tried to get him to run around a bit but that was about it.  He mostly hangs out with Rooster and Rosie and all of the horses eat around the round bale together and hang out in the shed together.  He totally gets herd dynamics and the older horses are teaching him a lot.  He comes in daily for grain and has free choice hay/grazing in the field.  T started him under saddle.  Now the real work begins...
