Same old same old toady , cleaned stalls , and mucked around with Comet and Quinn. did a little more work with Dandy as well . Took a different approach with Andee and Cat, just spent time with them at liberty in the pen , working on getting them to move away from pressure . and reminding Cat what WHOA means , getting in her space and asking for it , also just moving my body "in front " of her (eye line ) and asking for a whoa . took a few tries and a bit of exaggerated body language. But she is getting the hang of it again Why? because I like to be able to walk up to her or have her walk up to me safely in the pasture , knowing she is respectful of my space and boundaries , and if she is paying attention to me on the whoa, she should remain easy to catch(no science to this , it just works for me )
Another run at housekeeping (lucky I don't have a huge house , it seems to be the last thing on my list)
then went out to water the mares . Took a few head shots of the ladies , just for fun.
