So to start saturday I had a great ground work lesson with denny. I think I made some sort of step forward in handling his aggression when it comes to catching him. I have been using lavender herbs/spray and putting it on my hands and rubbing on his nose and it has helped tremendously to calming him.
Because we finished on a strong high note I was way more confident then usual. Sunday came along and I asked my mom if she would help me with moving some hay and she agreed. I had to catch denny as my mom would be going in the field with me (not safe lol). But because of yesterday I didn't hestiate with denny and he actually came to me. I could not believe it. After my mom saw that she asked if she could groom one of them. So I told her to choose between jessie or bailey. She said she would do both while I groomed lil red and denny.
So after I caught denny and tied him to the post I took my mom in and showed her how to catch them. We practiced leading for a bit. Jessie was being a but head and had to have some manners corrections but afterwards was great. She took a big liking to that little arabian bailey.
She had her car down there, off of course but with the radio blasting ... and she spent 2 hours grooming bailey. She was so happy. So after I finshed denny we both took bailey and denny for a nice walk around the property. I let my mom follow for a bit then had her lead. She did absolute amazing.
She now keeps bugging me to take her down there so she can work with bailey..so to make it easier I seperated bailey and jessie into another field so she can have full access to them while I am not home.
So proud of my mom right now :)
