29th April, 2010 Bree revisited

It's been a good six months since I saw Bree and at that time I was asked to put a headcollar on her. Today it was asked to go back to work on her foot-handling and leading. As I said in an earlier post, I don't think horses see their feet as a set of four so no surprise that Bree reacted differently with each one. At the end of today's session, she was happy to have her front left held for three seconds, the back left for seven, front right for five and back right for nine. 3,7,5,9 is the code. I am back again tomorrow to carry on with the work and we'll see how much latent learning she has done overnight.
