I took Bubba into the round pen today for the first time. He did amazing considering he's usually a psychotic spazz.
I got him desensitized to the carrot stick, yielding his quarters beautifully, and taught him how to lunge within 20 minutes! I really should have eaten something beforehand, was shaking the entire time bahaha. There were a couple points where he almost blew up, just because he is so skittish, and at those points we just had to stand there and take a break for a second. Just to stand and breathe. He had obviously calmed down from it as he was licking his lips. After collecting ourselves, I was able to get him moving off just with a point of my finger and getting him to stop by a little tug on the lead. So proud of my little pony. <3
I also got a little groundwork done with Mr. Grumps aka Henny. He's getting to his "teenager" stage where it's now, "You can't make me!" instead of "Okay mommy!" He does anything I ask him to do, but he consistently gives me his stink face. I've had enough of it and he now KNOWS I've have enough of it.
And I got some homemade treats made for the boys today. They loved them! Best batch I've made so far after fiddling around with the recipe. Overall a nice, productive Sunday. :)
Oh, and on a different note, here is a stolen horse in the Dallas area. Please keep an eye out guys and spread the word! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater
