Halios had a rough start in life. He was birthed in a pasture and had little to no human contact for the first year and a half of his life. Since he's been at Stable Life he has come a long way. He comes right up to us when we enterthe pasture and is more and more comfortable with people every day. As you can see, he's become down right nosey!
There are a few volunteers who took a special interest in Halios. They spent a great deal of time talking to him,
singing to him, reading to him, etc. to get him more used to people. They've also spent a lot of time touching him,
rubbing him, picking up his feet and desensitizing him to contact. With all this attention and in meeting him
today, you'd think that he was imprinted at birth.
Halios will be started under saddle in the spring of 2010. We're excited about being able to ride him as he has
that wonderful floaty trot that Arabs so commonly possess. He will be an excellent addition to our EAA program.
In the mean time, Halios is most used in round pen and ground working exercises with participants who are
practicing how to free lunge with body language, decisive movements, confidence and control.
Very sadly we lost Halios in August of 2010 to a stomach blockage.
