I know most of our updates have been centered around our graduate, Scarlett, and our newbie, Albert, but let's not forget about our big boy, Elmo! For those of you who've feen following us from the beginning, you may remember Elmo as our problem child. He was cranky, aggressive, stubborn, unridable, and hostile. You may also remember when we found out that the root cause of his attitude was a buttload of gastric ulcers which, by the way, have been succesfully treated . Since then, we have slowly worked on his temper, patience, and aggressiveness which were originally caused by the ulcers but became a bad habit for lack of a better term. We'd also re-started his saddle training and we'd started going through the process of backing him as if he's never had a saddle on before. Fast foreward to present day, we consider him green broke, and though he still has the hard head of a mule, his bloodthirst has disappeared and he's begun to show us how he's just a big softie. Since Wes joined the team, the two have really taken to each other and love to spend quiet moments in the paddock together .
This is just a quick, crappy edit, but I wanted to throw it out here because there are some changes happening right now at Talisman Eq including a makeover for Wesley and a remodelling of the facilities, so yea... enjoy our manly softies
