- Today I sat in the babies food pen and only Layla and Denali would come to me. When Denali wouldn't let me do anything with her I decided to focus on Layla. While I was sitting in the food bin, I would play the touching game with her and reinforce her with a clicker. I would tell her to touch and she would touch my hand, then I would click the clicker and the give her a some hay. Soon enough she caught on, 20 minutes in. I got of the bin and stood beside her. She was a little cautious at first but soon enough she let me touch her all over her face. I then made my way to her neck and her ears. She did very and well and after 2 hours, I was able to to touch her all over! I am so happy and excited, no one has ever been able to to this with any of the foals! Tomorrow I think I'm going to whip out the grooming kit and see what she thinks.

Check in often!

- Whoa! I was able to get a halter on her! I couldn't clip it on though because it was too small for her little head. Lol I did that a couple of times.

- Didn't try with the halter again. If it didn't fit the first time it wouldn't fit this time. I just played with and let her get more used to me and the rope.

- She came right up to me today and followed me around. She tried to groom me. Lol I was able to lead her around with the rope. I got her a rope halter today. :)

- I couldn't really work with her too much because I had to leave early from volunteering and go to a volunteer appreciation party! By the way, I got a bronze Gulliver medal for having 500 hours of work this year and I only started volunteering in April! Anyways, I slipped the rope halter on a few times, I still didn't knot it on yet. She followed me around A LOT and she even ran with me. Lol Going to see her on Wednesday!

Here is a picture to share with you guys!

I went to work with Layla again today and she was amazing! I actually got the halter all the way on and knotted and she didn't freak out like last time! Then I was able to lead her around, which she was a little nervous about but better than I thought she would be! I was also hold her front hooves for 10 seconds two times.
