Week 7 VBA Avena and Elizabeth Grant
This week Avena was a little off colour so we did not spend as much time learning as we normally would. I was beginning to wonder if we were advancing, then I spoke to a friend and they asked me what I could do on Sunday and what I could do on Thursday.
On Sunday I was able to put the halter on the end of her nose and rub her face by Thursday I was taking the halter on and off her nose and place it over her ears. She is still a bit uncomfortable with the halter over her head, so I spent most time concentrating on this. I also worked on picking up her front feet and rubbing her rump and back legs. I am able to rub under her belly.
I did give her a couple of days off as she was telling me that is what she needed, I was focused on what I was trying to achieve but if we cannot achieve anything if one of us is not feeling 100% or engaged completely
My quote of the week is: Horses stop talking when you stop listening. Unknown Author.
