Went in, haltered my big mare, put the neck collar on her and tied her to the big tree in the background of the pics. This kills two birds with one stone - stops them feeding off each other and spending hours running around being pains in the butt, and works on the fact that my mare does not
tie well. So my big girl spent an hour standing tied to a tree, and I spent an hour working with Chuck.
He is very
stubborn. He's clever, but he's stubborn. We are making progress, but it could be a little while. It's okay though, plenty of time :)
He'll let me walk up to him with the halter, but won't let me touch him with it. I can hold it in my right hand and touch him with my left, but can't hold it in my left hand and touch him with my right?????
He kicked out in my general direction today, so I promptly threw the halter and lead at him, and then it took me ten minutes to get near him again
but oh well, he has to learn from the start that kicking is not okay.
