It has been awhile since I have even gotten the chance to update my blog. I happened to become a proud owner of a chihuahua puppy that seems to need endless care all through the night. This creates a very sleepy Angi. Never the less, Prosperity and I have gotten several incredible sessions in and I still need to download the photos. We had one day of sacking out with the pad (still a little uncertain on that one) and me thinking that it sounded good to try a saddle also.
Wrong answer! Prosperity was not ready for that and let me know by blowing straight up into the air so I just focused on the pad. I spent one day trying to teach her to wear the tarp (not quite there either) and one day teaching her to drive over the tarp with the halter on. She spent alot of time in the air on that one too but the end of that session made a proud Angi and a horse who willingly walked over the tarp instead of jumped it. Boy can this girl move :0
The last several days have been meeting the trailer and it has been quite an adventure. The first day we worked an hour until she could put her head in it. The second day took a little less time but still produced a wet Prosperity who is learning to be very soft on her halter indeed. Today was the big break through, she drove up to the trailer then put her front feet inside it. This, of course, took awhile, but she improved so much and hardly sweated at all.
I am still waiting for someone to want her :)
