Chance ~ 6 month update

January 22, 6 months ago...
 Today, July 22...
He and i have made great strides. As you can see he looks totally different, his winter coat is gone but he has also been gaining muscles and his back continues to lift.  We are close to completing a 60 day metabolic diet to see if it helps him, so far i don't see a change though.  Our bond is strong, he trust me and his respect towards me has much improved though we are still working some things out. He is no longer food aggressive and i am able to groom him without any issues.
In the last 6 months he's been the recipient of 100's of hugs and smooches. The music man and monkey often drop by to hang out too. We moved to a new boarding/training barn a month and half ago and i am so happy we did and love it there, its a perfect fit for us. The women are wonderful, the trails fun and thanks to Sue i am becoming a more confidant leader and our round pen work is improving.
Oh yeah keep scratching right there... thanks man or at least i think that what he's saying... I love this silly moment captured and their expressions are hilarious. 
In the last 6 months i was fortunate to meet Paula. She knows the house he came from before going to the rescue and was able to get me his paperwork.  I now have his birth date, where he was born and his original adoption papers from the BLM, very exciting stuff, thanks Paula!

The last six months have been amazing. Chance is incredibly smart, stubborn, sweet and open. He really is such a sweet guy, a total pocket horse and i am so thankful for him. What a blessing it is to see what a little love and kindness can do.

Life is SO good!
