Hmmm...I'm not really sure about this one. It does sound like she's letting you know she's done, but if its only been a half hour, than she's just being a brat like you said. When you first asked her to turn on the haunches, both to the left and to the right, and she did it good, than stop right there with the turning on the haunches, praise her a lot and go to something else that she knows. I wouldn't do the same thing over and over again, because after a while, I would get bored too. I know you do other stuff inbetween but that doesn't matter. If she does it right the first time, back off and wait until tomorrow or something and do it again. But that's just me. I do not think you did anything wrong, except that, and that doesn't mean you did it wrong it just means that you did it too much. I would even give her a day off and go to the trails or something jsut to get her out of the ring. BTW, I know how the weather is here in Ohio too (it's hard to get out sometimes) I live here but I live in Cuyahoga Falls, so I think we get hit a little harder with the crappy weather than you do lol.
- If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday?
