An early start this morning to go to the other end of Dorset to rendezvous with Donna and Heidi and a beautiful pure-bred Morgan filly called Maddy. Maddy was changing hands from one to the other and going off to her new luxury home in Cambridge. Home-bred and well loved she has never travelled anywhere. My job was to persuade her to load into the horsebox.
|I was rather hoping that this might be my Christmas present|
|Introducing clickered treats|
|All aboard and there's a good view from here|
|Rather than just load and go, we practiced going on and off a few times before she set off.|
"And well done to Sarah for doing such a wonderful job with her! Peace and calm all the way until she was loading like a pro!" DH
Maddy has been bought to be one of a matching pair of buckskin Morgans and to pull the vehicle above. She is such a sweet and intelligent mare and only needed to be shown that there was somewhere for her to go once she's got up the ramp.
|Only one word to describe her sire: Lush!|
"Thank you so much for yesterday with Maddie, we made it home in good time, she was a little anxious in the beginning but settled well for the motorway. Quite a change for her, lots of horse vocal language in the yard for the horses today!!"HS
