|Barney and Arnie|
These ponies were not bred on the moor but their mother was fairly wild and so they have picked up some of their instinct and temperament from her. Barney, the one we were working with today, had a finely tuned energy and intent radar.
|Catching, groundwork and single line work.|
Before we went in to thaw out by the fire, we had to say hello to all of the Percherons, all of which I could take home and settle down next to my fire.
"Caught without him even moving!!! so happy he loves me!!!! I think we definitely turned a corner yesterday." CKOne week later:
"Well we have cracked catching Barney he stands I rub he sniffs the headcollar then I can put it on. I took him for a little walk today to see the big world outside the barn lol. He found it quite scarey but he settled and stayed with me. I could stop and he would stop and he walked with me not behind or in front so all good. I took his headcollar off in the yard when we had finished. I put it away in the barn, came out and he walked with me to the other side stopped when I did and then continued to walk with me back to the gate. All of this was not asked for by me he just joined up with me." CK
