We finished our daughter's loft bed a few days "early" from our plan - it came out really cool and she loves it. She got a major room overhaul and our son got some new things too to make it all work.
So what have I been up with Prophecy since our demo saddle had to be sent back? Trailer practice and ground work! Aside from anxiously awaiting our own saddle to come in from Italy...
|Friday brush out|
He was also highly motivated by his buddies sweet grain and some real peppermint candies!
|An hour later and we are on :)|
I think I got my boy back! Within 30 minutes I was hooked up, caught him, brushed and put his cooler on AND loaded 3 times! He barely balked the first time. I asked with some pressure and reminded him of the yummy stuff waiting in the feeder and he eagerly came up behind. He got a few mouthfuls, we backed off and turned around to do it again. This time I closed the divider on him and went around to the escape door. Had him stand in there munching for a bit, then backed him off, took a short walk around the driveway and came back to load once more - he got some more yummy treats and then I backed him off and called it a day.
One more practice run for Tuesday...then the real deal Wednesday! I'll update about the appointment after - I'm really curious to see what she finds and what she says we can fix/work on with him.
|Cooler is almost too tight in the chest!|
|Ok mom, now what? :)|
