This week my aim was to be make sure Avena was comfortable with me touching her with my hands and to continue to build our bond.
This week I spent a lot of time with Avena and she is comfortable with me patting her, she loves rubs on the neck, she calls to me when she sees me and follows me around when I am with her.
Her personality is beginning to shine, she is determined and curious.
I am not going to lie, I was beginning to question myself and what I was doing, a few people gave me ideas and suggestions , others tried to push me to get a head stall on her, but I stayed true to myself and kept to my plan and now it is paying off. Avena has made me work for her trust every step of the way, just because she is such a clever girl and living up to her name of Princess Warrior.
