kicking

I agree make sure you show her that is not going to fly with you. I had a similar experience the other day. My little one 7 1/2 months has been great and I have let my guard down completly well the other day I thought I saw a burr and went to get it out of the top of her tail. She lifted her head at me but it was just a clump of dirt so I started rubbing her hip etc and she went back to eating the next thing I know she kicked! Thankfully I was on the other side of the fence fixing to leave when I noticed the clump so I leaned over the fence to reach her and there was the feeding trouf there made of concrete. She kicked it so hard she pulled hair and skin off of her leg and actually got caught a bit beteen the trouf and the fence. She turned and looked at me like what they heck??? You were suppose to be hurt not me!! She was inches from my belly. If I had been right beside her she would have really gotten my pretty bad!! I hope she remembers what happens when she things of kicking again!!!!! If you use a small whip or a carrot stick of some kind keep it with you at all times. Use it when needed at phase four when that happens but it has to be immediate!! Let her know there are conciquences for her actions.
