Remember the first time you put boots on your horse?

Well, I did that with Squiggy. She did the good ol' "I dunno what foot to hold up!!" and gave me some looks like, "What is this!? This is madness!"
But, she got over it in a few minutes, then I let her play in the round-ish pen for a bit:

XD. My mare had this total, *Holey Jellybeans! Holey Jellybeans! I'm going to diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie!* moment, and galloped off bucking and twisting. Wrecked a boot. Next time I did it slowly, introducing them one at a time, lots of pats etc. Just shows you never know with horses, whats going to set them off. I took her to a show today and the most terrifying thing wasn't the tiger mascot, the ATV s doing wheelies, the grumbling pig... Nope, it was one of the competitors dads who was sitting by the side lines in a wheelchair. Snapped a good lead spooking at it, and almost crashed into a jump stand second time she saw it. She got over it pretty fast tho, that was good. Did great in the show too.
