9th June, 2011 Lucy is a Diamond

Lucy has made so much progress - it was down to work within ten minutes today and introducing her to new and novel things. Most horses seem to be either frightened of things that approach them or things that they are asked to approach - rarely both. Whilst Lucy was worried about being touched with the feather duster she was keen to follow the umbrella and walked over the tarpaulin with a very short while of going up to it. I wonder how much of this is a concern about what people intend to do when they walk up to her - just as with the semi-feral foals, we used the feather duster to 'seduce' her and she was soon asking for more.
