No offense taken.....I love to communicate experiences and beliefs with those that have the same interest as mine because I feel they are my greatest teachers! Sooooooo as I tell all my friends please don't sugar coat any thing, tell it how it is and I will chew on the information to make life better. It's not only me involved here, but the innocent life of a confused horse and if it doesn't get managed she will forever be an unwanted horse all her life. I've seen so many horses sold over and over and over because they are unmanageable. Thank you for your insight, input and honesty.
I hope I'm not boring people with my day to day diary on this issue.
Tonight I was held up at work, so I got home an hour after feeding time.... SHAME on WORK!!!!
They were waiting at the gate, and nervousness was setting in again. You know that knot in the stomach feeling? I pushed it aside and didn't miss a lick. Put my horse clothes on, fed the barn cats that hang around the house and grabbed my riding crop and lead line. I moved so fast Rasha didn't know what was coming. Oh it was all good. I walked through the gate and moved towards both of them with strong intent, but with softness! They both moved towards me and we met in the middle. It’s dark here now so it was hard to see who was who, because they are both black as night. The yard light lit their halters so I was able to make out the colors of each halter. Rasha red and Raina purple....Thanks to colored halters this saved me the time of figuring out who was who. I reached out and clipped Rasha to the lead line. Yeah!!!!! Success. We walked side by side to the barn. It happened so fast I didn't give her time to think out her maneuver to dominate me. hahahahahaha.... I play this over and over in my mind all day of how I'm going to manage her. This is a good thing, because I don't think about the problems at work. She occupies my mind on a constant basis. My new goal in life.
is to become inseparable with her. As we walked to the barn I did some fast but positive bonding. We stopped and walked and stopped and walked and she was very respectful with each step...mmmmmmm I think I won't hand feed her until she has total respect and understands the people horse relationship!!!! Tomorrow nights plan… clip her up to the lead line and do some turns along with the walk and stop program!!!
Here are the girls!
