He is halter broke and leads well.

He also picks up his feet well and stands moderately well for the farrier.

Harley was born into the world on a cold damp morning; he was found shivering and unresponsive in the mud.

We immediately set to warming him up. Mom wanted nothing to do with him.

The vet came out and did what he could to help mom nurse her baby. Both had a body scale of 1-2.

We had the vet out more than once and have been feeding Harley vitamin supplements by IV with fluids, trying to give him enough stamina to nurse.

At this point it was a waiting game until they both get strong enough to make it on their own.

Unfortunately for Harley, he was born during the "Kansas Monsoon season."

The mud does not seem to bother Harley. What a difference 4 weeks makes!
