Look I'm not shoving treats in her face. That was just yesterday because she was REALLY good. Plus we'd be bringing her home so that I'm not sitting on the couch all day, thining of her and I can actually go out and see her. Right now she doesn't see me as a food dispenser because I still ride her and groom her.

Sadly not at the moment. As soon as my laptop come back, I'll post bunches of pictures. But right now I have to post a similar picture. I"ll post them soon though. Were picking up my laptop soon so I'll have them soon

Gabby, when you get the feeling she's reading your mind, she is. Humans are inclined to give off very strong signals with horses when often a suggestion will work.

There is a program called Friendship Training (Friendship Training) which develops very strong bonds between horse and person; I am doing it with my gelding Jerry and it is helping us overcome his trust issues and we are developing a deep bond, to the point where he now often chooses my company over that of his favourite mare. I am hearing similar stories from other people doing the program.

Even just spending time with horses without asking anything in return helps heaps.

I just want to add, in the pasture when you call do you stop walking to see if she'll come? She heard your voice but doesn't know where you went. Her vision past about 3 yards isn't very good. She detects movement very well. It is the same reason deer get hit on the highway even tho they seem to look right at the oncoming car. Additional movement is needed. Wave your arm over your head side to side as you call, or walk as tho to circle her.
