    With only a few cows 'under her girth' I'd say she's doing exceptionally well! You can tell at certain points when she realized what she's supposed to be doing and starts following the cow on her own. As she gets more experience, you'll find that happpening more and more. She doesn't do it so much with the mechanical cow, but maybe she just isn't one to be fooled into thinking that a tarp is half as exciting as the real thing ;)

    I agree, she's doing exceptionally well for as green as she is, especially considering that she's had so much time off.

    In the vid of her with the real cow, I can really see her catching on. She's watching that cow the way a good young horse should be. Just a bit more experience and you can probably just drop your hand on her and let her do all the work.

    You're right, she was much more switched on with the live cattle. There was a few times I had to make her wait for her turns because she was all over it as soon as the cow moved. Steve (The coach) said that if I gave her two or so weeks of this she would be ready to go in a snaffle bit cutting - Which would be so fun! I would love to try some actual cutting. However we don't have the right yard set-up or the right age cattle at the moment to get any practice in and there isn't a great deal of cutting competition in this area, which is a bummer. But we will have three or four campdrafts in Jan/Feb so hopefully we go okay there!
