So, after a 3 hour drive to pick her up, and a shockingly easy load into the trailer - she didn't even hesistate, just smelled the shavings and hopped right into it. She travelled fine, was quite calm when we got home and opened the trailer doors.
We got a halter on her without incident - she was a little resistant. After about half an hour using the zig zag technique - pulling from the side with a 12 foot lead and using steady, light pressure and releasing when she tried - she got the gyst of leading. She is by no means a "pro" but she did quite well! I only worked her for about 45 minutes with the lead and halter and then removed the halter to let her into the fence with her new "family" which consists of a gelding named "Doc" (nicknamed Doctor Mom... he always tries to mother the new weanlings) and a mare named "Flare" (who also tries to mother weanlings and has taken to Classy quite well).
That was day 1.
Day 2, I caught her with a little trouble (She is still a little wary of humans) and lead her. It is this day I realized she is definitely going to test every boundary placed on her. The first one we worked on was biting. Everytime we stopped leading she would walk up and try to bite - each time she did so I would give her a light tap on the bum with the end of the lead rope. By the end of the session she was standing quite well and showed no intention of biting. (Phew! The first bite she made contact but didn't break the skin and I was shocked - but quickly corrected her.)
Then, after I had gone home from the farm for the day I get a call from my cousins saying that she got out. They got her back in and called after they found out how she did so. They use a wire (not barbed) for fencing and she would put her head under the first string, brace her chest against the bottom two and push them as hard as she could until she broke the clamps off that were holding them on.
We're sputting a fourth string and for now, they are in a different paddock with stronger fencing and so far *fingers crossed* she has not found a way to break out.
Anyway! On to the pictures which is what all you guys came here for in the first place! :)
PS: I hope those super straight pasterns correct themselves at least a LITTLE as she matures.
