29th May, 2010 Brandee and Andy

Another visit to Brandee today to work on catching her before the farrier arrived to tidy up her feet. I had been told that she was good for the farrier but actually it became clear that it has been quite a struggle up to now and that she has had to be tied up to have it done. Andy, the farrier, is very quiet and gentle with her and today we were able to do it with me just holding her on the end of a looped lead rein giving her the odd click and treat. Afterwards I took her headcollar off and put it on a couple of times to make sure that she was still willing to let me and then her owner did some touch and move away work, managing to touch her for the very first time while she was loose.
