Baby steps

DAY 17

After our bad day in the round pen, the grey mare did NOT want anything to do with me. She was even more skittish and standoffish than she was before. I decided to be patient with her and just be happy to spend time around her not asking anything of her. The most trying thing we did was a little bit of grooming.

Yesterday when I came out to clean the paddock she came up to the gate to greet me. She followed me around for a bit and let me stand there petting her without "running away". She even tried following me into the barn. Especially once she realized that that's where the treats were coming from.

We still have a long way to go but at least we're moving back in the right direction.
