Oh, boy! Do I have my work cut out! I decided to take Scout up to the round pen and do "join up" with her. Er...nope. Not interested. Too many other distractions...the tractor, Gigondas down in the arena, screaming and running...the ranch owners loading and unloading two horses in their new trailer...NO DEAL! I ran her little BUTT around and around and she finally faced me, but then got distracted and moved off, so I sent her around some more. Now I know how Nuzzling Muzzles feels with her irritating neighbors! I did sort of get her to "stay" and praised her, but she'll be my project for the summer! And, Gigondas stepped on my foot when I was walking her back to her corral. She was a perfect lady walking down and back from the arena, but I wasn't paying attention at one point, and she stepped on my foot! I screeched, she jumped, but she stayed right with me! GOOD GIRL! It wasn't her fault! I was distracted. I also somehow managed to mangle one of my fingers and now it is stiff and sore. And, since Scout refuses to walk in a straight line, I've tweaked my back trying to get her to stay with me and walk and now I can barely walk straight! I'm going to have to take some some extra strength Tylenol to get through the day! Oye vei~~so much to do! I'm going to take Scout out EVERY time I visit and work with her! She's very smart, but getting her attention is a real problem..any ideas or suggestions? She's also an alpha mare and you know what THAT is like!
