IVAN HAJNAL Week 12
I wouldn’t say we are cruising into relaxation… but he’s really trying. You can almost see him when he’s thinking and assessing his trust levels, nervousness scales and then puts in his natural desire to “have a go”. And its this willingness that continually gives me something to work to his advantage.
Percy had his first trim this week. He found it challenging, but he completed the task. His riding in and out the property is excelling. His fear of vehicles coming from behind is overcome - kangaroos, trucks, ditches, water – he’s taking all in his stride. Percy has enjoyed a hose down, was unsure of it between back legs but otherwise enjoyed it. He also drank from the spout. This week I plan to work on floating.
