23rd September, 2010 Habiba!

The Arabic for darling is Habiba and that's just exactly what this foal is. I was asked to do some early leading work with her and to show her owner the No Fear, No force approach to putting a headcollar on. Until now she has managed by putting the headcollar over a feed bowl and waiting for the foal to take her food. This approach can work but relies on the foal not growing wary of taking feed. Today she had her headcollar on and off several times.
