You'd have to ask Talyn about the ingredients as she mixed it herself and even applied it herself. She did need some help with the removal though...since she lacks opposable thumbs . Best to leave it until it's dried, not that it makes it more effective, but the removal isn't quite as messy.
Army wife, she only pulled back once. I guess she figured that if going forward back and forth didn't get her loose, maybe going backward would. She pulled for a couple of seconds, jumped forward, and didn't pull again.
EB, I made sure she was giving to the halter from every direction, leading well, backing up, turning, etc. Then, it was just as simple as tying the knot.
Worked with her a bit yesterday on sending and lunging with the bareback pad on. No buck, no freak out, nothing except a bit of a pissy look. I just stayed inside the barn since I was only asking for a walk and there is still a huge puddle in my round pen.
Good news is, when she actually levels out and moves rounded with her head on the vertical, her neck looks decent. I didn't get any good pix of it because she would only do it sporadically, but the potential is there.
Yeah, does anyone really need 3 guesses to figure out what she's thinking? LOL
