And in case anyone is wondering, YES I did carry the short whip with me today when leading her in and out of the barn but I did not bring it with me to the paddock. I did not have to use it today.
Remember, Im in this new mindset where im not thinking of her as a biter and Im not holding her past against her, so im not anticipating it from her.
I really do believe that her biting is a result from her getting annoyed or irritated by me. Since ive toned it down with her over the past week and given her 3 days of us just hanging out this week, I do feel Ive seen gentlier side of her. The past 5 or 6 days she has seemed to be happy to see me, she would nicker or whiny loudly when she sees me get there.
Today I once again, when I go up to her, scratch and rub, but I stop shortly and walk off, then she will follow me.
Also, she was not put back out today in that area that she was in last night, right next to the herd. Confused why the BO didnt do this, I was totally anticipating this as I was going there today. I was almost certain that she would be in the herd tonight. Maybe tomorrow he will put her in that area again, who knows. He said yesterday that she seemed fine, its just her not drinking water from the auto waterer was a concern to him.
