I am babysitting a new babysitter for Maraschino - Coco.
Sadly he has been abused in his short life so far (he is 7) and was tethered and chased by children and had things thrown at him - so you cannot get near him. We have left his halter on in case we need it in an emergency but I would like to get it off soon for safety reasons.
He faces out alot - apparently if you do need to catch him if you can get to his hind end he just freezes (and shakes), while you make your way to the halter... so he turns his back end to you all the time.... but does not kick (he kicks out at horses but not humans)...
Under all that though I think he is quite curious, and quite brave.
