    Ahh

    I've never been so proud of a horse for such a ridiculous small thing HAAHA!

    Like I mentioned before Nova has had a hard time bending at all to her right side, even staying on the wall that way.. with out counter bending..

    WELLL!!!!! Today we had a HUGE break through!! She can finally do a walking circle with a nice bend and doesnt throw her shoulder out, AND she's staying on the wall!! Im so so so happy! Its at the walk but this is great! I also finally got rid of that head set she had going on im letting her balence herself out and what not before setting her head again.

    She was so soft in the mouth foam was just falling out of her mouth, which is a good sign! She's relaxing! The teeth grinding as stopped too!
    Nova has also started to be a lot more interactive with me and with now lower her head almost to the ground when she's relaxing near me! YAY! Also has the confidence to roll next to me!

    3? Days and so much has improved its great!

    Tomorrow I think were going to take her on a trail alone and see what happens! :)

    Best wishes with her...she really does sound like one in a million. I really hope you and her to really well together; and it sounds like you are already! Here's hoping she vet checks okay as well!!!

    I was really proud of my mare today, because I was standing leaning on her corral this evening talking on my phone, and she just came and stood next to me. She had even left her evening meal to do this! Such a vast difference from the horse that stood on the other side of the corral, and I had to do approach and retreat everytime I wanted to catch her.

    Well done, she sounds like a sweetheart. I just love horses that enjoy a good scratch and cuddle! You two sound like best mates already keep up the good work.

    This will be where I post my questions I have about her, and our progress on a day to day bases. I hope some people learn form this thread and its going to be a positive one. There will be the obvious pictures and videos for all of you. :)

    So lets begin!
    -------------------------

    Nova will be coming home friday!
    My plans so far is to really get her trust. Where she's at right now he's very aggressive with his disipline, which is fine to an extent..but Nova seems to be very sensative when it comes to that so she's learned to be very careful around humans. I went to her stall before I left the barn yesterday and called for her and she jumped a foot then froze in place, poor girl.

    Also in order to help her loosen up the first few days is going to be grooming and grazing and get her to understand humans are okay to be around. Then I want to start carrot stretches and nose to tail, because she's a VERY stiff horse and maybe half of it is because she's scared to do anything wrong and the fact that she hasn't done ANYTHING in 3 years?

    So I will start there. First day will just be walking around and showing her her new home of course!! :) Possibly groom if she's relaxed enough.

    OH and she will be getting vetted and checked over soon as well :)

    Pictures will come soon enough when she's home!

    Hope everyone will enjoy this thread!
