week 20    


After a big couple of weeks for Avena, this week I thought she could have a quiet week to process what we had achieved over the previous 2 weeks, float training, tie up, playing with VBA Rafiki (who was in the last Yearling Challenge, trained by Grace Varker), meeting new people and being lead around the property by other people.

The good thing about Avena is that she is very curious and loves to meet people and then request that they give her a scratch.  She also loves to show them that she can stand on the wooden platform that we have (she thinks that is pretty clever and likes to show off).

I have also been practising catching her and playing games and of course just sitting and reading with her.
