Zali has had another good week here, with a focus on really cementing strong foundations with her handling. She has become very soft and curious around people and is now super relaxed with her daily routines such catching, covering, full body brush and picking up all four feet. She has had her teeth done by our equine dentist and her front feet trimmed.
Zali has been lead off our demo horse Spotlight around the farm and down the roads a few times, with a saddle on, to get her out exploring and teach her to go forward. She is very happy to stand quietly on the arena with me on her while I teach lessons.
Zali was lacking in condition but has made a huge improvement already, gaining weight and shine. I am focusing on improving this further before she starts doing more under saddle.
