week 20



This week has been super busy with work and medical appointments for humans in the family, so Scarlett has had an easy week.

I’ve only managed two short training sessions with her, both were working with the float. After her two short trips last week, she is quite apprehensive about staying in the float, even when she is able to angle off, without the divider in. I have not pushed the issue, I want her calm and relaxed before I take her for another trip and she needs more time just standing inside, learning it really IS okay to stand there.

We have, however, found time for smoochies and cuddles, as shown in the picture. I just love this little mare, so much.
