My mare Krystal has yet to allow me to touch hers except when she was born.
After downloading those pictures I am booking you a flight here to take some of mine and to get this shy filly to come up to me.
You have all the superpowers it seems. Shalom
Thanks Donald. I am very pleased with this cross.
I don't know about superpowers with regard to her walking up to me. My relationship with Solei is such that she is completely trusting with me in the stall after years of partnership with this particular mare. Solei is an exceptional horse. She and I have an understanding that is like nothing I've had except with her late sister. (People poo-poo the idea, but I daresay it's spiritual.) I believe it's this acceptance/lack of fear that she is teaching the foal. That and the temperament I'm breeding for with these two amazing horses results in that precious girl having no reason to be wary. All other mares "tell" the baby to stay away from humans, but she makes no effort to teach her filly this. And it's not for lack of knowing how, as she is completely assertive if the other broodmares come near her stall or baby. Even leading her with the baby being led by someone else, she leads without worry, in total trust, softly nickering to the filly, but never concerned about "losing" her as long as I'm with her.
She is absolutely priceless.
