I bought Roux a little black halter. We worked with it yesterday for a little while. He's still unsure about this whole handling bit until he's had a few minutes to settle down with some yummy feed out of your hand.
I have been very softly looping the cotton lead around his shoulder and encouraging him to walk forward with pressure. He's doing well with that. Got the halter on about halfway before he was no longer sure about it.
He got his first bath and acted like he was dying. Haha He immediately dropped down into the sand and rolled as if it were hot lava on him. -giggle-
That's like my puppy, Hank. We were at Agility class in Plantersville last night .. it was HOT and STILL .. so I kept trying to drag him under the sprinkler to cool off ... You'd have thought I was killing him .. LOL.
I hear good things about the Grasslands. Lots of people go there. It's between Decatur and DFW area. Only about an hour from me. Everytime I attempt to go, something happens. Sometimes life gets in the way of my fun!
