How to handel a 1 year old (filly) shetland pony
Flower, our mini shetland pony arrived today at our house,
Be bought her from a local spanish farmer, a pet for the familie.
She was calm when she arrived, then when we made a fus she was running up and down bocking, her ears seemed to be ok.
Later she came up to us and sniffed around and blew warm breath in our necks. To me this seems to be a good start.
Several times she let our daughter come up to her but when my daughter start brushing her she slowely walks off.
She already layed down several times and had a sleep, when we were inside the house.
In time I like to use the clicking methode to train her, when do I start with this.?
Do I need to walk up to her hold her and start brushing, do I give her time to get used to us? Please advice us
