Day Eleven

January 19, 2009

I waited until tonight to work with Sierra. She was still shy when I walked into her stall to give her hay and to refill her water. She stood next to her hay while I picked out her stall, and I then Stood in her stall and did some more exercises with her. I was able to right away use the end of the whip and pet her with it. She twitched once or twice but then exhaled and enjoyed it (i used the handle part to scratch by her withers) After about 5 minutes on each side, I ran my hand down the whip 1/2 way and moved closer to her. She was still not sure about this change but she quickly settled, relax, and began licking her lips. She was just not ready for me to go all the way and touch her with my hand.

THAT is for tomorrow =)

  1. Good job! Don't waste any time now in getting in close for the touch. I know I said not to rush, but she sounds like she's ready, and getting that halter on is going to open up a lot of in hand training opportunities :)
