Australian Brumby Challenge ©
Matilda & VBA Taffy's report of the week
Well it is going really quick we are already half way through the brumby challenge, Taffy and I are going pretty good so far and this week we have been doing a lot of different things but we have only done a little bit on each of those things.
This week the very first thing we did was where I threw the teddy bear in front or behind him and he would walk over to it and touch it then I would give him a treat , He was really good at this so I didn't have to do much so we moved on.
The next thing we did was the leading he has gone from pushing and shoving to walking beside me well most of the time. We did some practicing walking up and down the laneway because we had to put him in with the others and they were put up the very top paddock so when I wanted to do some work with him I had to go and get him. Which in a way was good because I could practice his leading.
The very last thing we did was brushing all over he has this weird piece of gunk hanging from his belly and we were focusing on getting him really comfy when we are touching him there so we could cut it off.
Week 11 goal:
getting the gunk off of him and getting him used to different people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH AND GETTING HIM ON THE FLOAT AND DRIVING AROUND THE BLOCK THEN UNLOADING HIM!!!!
