    Dee, if she continues to be aggressive like that and it starts to be directed toward you, I will gladly loan you Dobe for a couple of weeks. Rafe went through a stage like that where he would boss his momma and the other horses he was in with around. They would just ignore him and it went on for quite a while. Then one day, I noticed that he was acting a bit obnoxious and bossy toward me so I disciplined him and then turned him loose. I went and got Dobe out of the big pasture and put him in there and he gave the little s**t a serious attitude adjustment very quickly. Ever since then, he has been nothing but respectful to both me and all other horses.

    The first time that little brat acts agressive toward me, will be the LAST time, trust me! She aimed a kick at daughter the other day - missed by a mile. That's the only time Momma ever did anything to her, but she pinned her ears and nearly knocked Rain on her butt - I haven't figured out if it was just a coincidence or if Dancer really doesn't like Rain kicking at humans... That would be a bit much, wouldn't it!

    I worked ten hours today, came home and helped Shea, Mike and Liz lasso Rain so we could put her little halter on her. I held Dancer most of the time. She seemed to find the whole episode rather amusing until the first time Mike got the rope on Rain. She (Rain) pitched a screaming fit and threw herself over backwards. Mike grabbed her and tried to ease the lasso off of her before Liz slid the halter on her. Bad idea - she jumped free and we had to start all over again.

    The second time Mike got a rope on her, he did it just the way I hoped he would, and Rain reacted just exactly the way I predicted she would. He got a loop on her that didn't go around her neck - she had one leg through it so that it went around both her neck and her chest so it didn't choke her - she just couldn't move. She just relaxed and stood stock still and was even sniffing the halter and giving me kisses while I put it on her. It was like she was saying "okay, getting caught isn't so bad after all. Besides, I get apples!" Of course, when we let her go she had to run around like a speed demon until Dancer decided she had acted like a fool long enough and put her foot down. Rain stopped immediately and walked up to Dancer like she was saying "but Mom, it itches!"

    We left a lead rope attached to the halter, and believe it or not, Mike picked up the rope and gave it a tug, and she actually yielded to the rope and took a couple of steps in the direction of the tug. Mike was smart enought to immediately turn loose of the rope - release of pressure is a reward. Rain won't be hard to lead break after all. She sure is a smart little baby brat!


    Shea is going to get pix of Rain in her new halter tomorrow.

    Nothing like the discipline of a herd to bring around a bratty young one! My "baby" is a just turned two year old, about 16 hds, socially inept filly, pushy, full of energy. 2 wks of being turned out with one or another of my geldings is really cooling her jets! She doesn't think she's such hot stuff now :)

    Rain is soooo cute :) Funny how they come out so innocent and develop such an attitude so soon!

    No kidding! I was really concerned that things would not go well. We hadn't had much luck trying to be subtle in trying to get a halter on Rain. I was afraid someone, equine or human, would get hurt. Or Rain would get so traumatized she wouldn't have anything to do with us. I really HATED having to lasso her.

    However, she was her old self within a few minutes. This morning she was prancing around as usual. Even came running up to the gate looking to have her butt scratched...
