Just as gypsygirl said. It has nothing to do with them being afraid of the tarp or bag itself it is just teaching her that she needs to stand still and not run away, buck etc whenever something loud and crackly (such as a bag or anything) spooks her. As I stated above, i'm not just going to use the grocery bag, I said I was going to use numerous thing such as a large black garbage bag, different cloths and big activity balls and whatever else I can think of. And yes...i am already aware of the fact that different colors can spook them, even if it is the same object, this is all part of desensitization. You should look up some videos on youtube to truly understand why we use things like that, because it sounds to me that you don't quite understand yet, it will help you to watch how they respond to these things and why we use what we use.
