wow. My pony....wow lol I went out to get her in the field and I was in a patient mood and I had a few carrots and I'd give carrots to the other horses to show Cheyenne that she'll get carrots too. Then she came over-ish (meaning she came and stood about a foot and a half away from me) and I held out a carrot and she was going to take it, I tried to slip the leadrope around her neck and she pinned back her ears and ran away. Then I gave the carrot to another horse and took out another carrot and waited for Cheyenne to come over to me again. I got another foot close and I held out the treat. Whenever I raised the leadrope to put it around her she pinned back her ears and so I lowered the rope again. Then I started tempting Cheyenne with the carrot. It was SO funny- We stood there for about half an hour just looking at eachother and I had the carrot right beside her nose lol Then I tried to step closer to put around the leadrope and she ran away. Then I was getting more and more impatient and I decided to hold out a carrot (yes I had a lot of carrots lol they were mini ones) to one of the other horses and when they came I'd give them the carrot then slip the leadrope on and lead them around a little bit then give them another carrot and let them go. I did that with 2 horses and then decided to try it with Cheyenne. So she came over to me and then I gave her a carrot and as I predicted, she ran off. Then I decided to run all the horses to the gate so I did and then I cornered Cheyenne (the gate is in a corner) and eventually she gave in and stayed still for me to get her halter on her and lead her out.
It's funny because she had a great time when I got her out- we were doing games again which she LOVES! And I gave her more carrots... I don't know why she doesn't like to come to me. I'll probably go tomorrow and I won't even work her so that I can trick her once in a while and she'll maybe be a little more exited to come out when she's not going to be worked. If that makes sense. I've heard that it worked.
