She seems content for the most part...
She's definitely gotten the idea, which is a good thing considering she's just as unhappy with the hose as she is of fly spray. Two things that I was told she was good for.
Big yawn, I'd woken her from a nap as I came in the barn.
Trailer loading was going well, she's hopping right in, it like most things are on the back burner till the heat advisory passes. I did restart practicing fly spray with the water bottle, figured being its water it may just feel good. It's the one thing I'm doing clicker training with right now She's caught on to the clicker quite well, but finds it difficult despite wanting to hold still. I'm able to spray her right shoulder, RF, and neck. Further back than the shoulder is still a no go, the left side well...it's not getting anywhere fast.
Oh, she had her first hot air balloon experience at breakfast this morning. She was inside munching her feed and must have caught a glance of it floating by thru the window. She ran out of the barn, I had no idea what was going on. She ran to the furthest side of the paddock. I stepped out and there it was just an acre from us, floating just over the tops of the corn. She was both worried and curious, going towards it, then away. Once she realized it was headed the other way, she got as close to it as the fence allowed her to and watched closely. The small airport below us is planning an event with over 30 balloons next month. I do believe Grace will have an early bedtime with the fans on high and perhaps a radio!
Odd the differences in different horses, Camryn totally got the benifits of fly spray, never cared about the fans, and the balloons, well she was certain they were planning to kill her.
