[RC] young horses - Charlesey Charlton

speaking of starting colts, I have been doing ground work with my coming 3 yr old (March 2009) TB gelding today in the round pen and finally realized that he is just down right LAZY!

I have raised this colt (home bred) and I admit I have been a little easy on him.

AS far as personality goes he is a gem and you can mount him in the field bareback without a halter or anything and he understands what a saddle is and to stand quietly when mounting, that is all we have done so far, as I am wanting to go slowly with him...he is going to be a BIG boy and has ALOT of growing left to do...

my farrier says I should just go ahead and ride the hair off of him, she gets really frustrated with him b/c he seems to have a slight problem with anything that doesn't involve eating or petting...

My question to everyone out there is:

Is there a cure for laziness? Or am I just feeding the monster so to speak???
