I did learn from a youtube video that other day that when I walk into the pasture, just walk alittle in, call to Flicka, watch her, she knows I'm there....... then stand, wait and let her come to me. When she does I then reward her with praise. I also let her smell my hand and give her a rub. Then I am to leave her standing there in the pasture. They say to do this for awhile, it builds up trust. So thats what I did this morning and it took my stubborn horse atleast 30-45 minutes to come to me... I was freezing my toes off. But I was not gonna give in and let her win "The Show Down", I didnt care if it took hours, I was not leaving that pasture til she walked over to me. I know I have so much to learn and will... its just gonna take time and patience.
This is how far away she was from me...
She stood there forever either being stubborn or really enjoyin the warmth from the morning sun.
Shes such a beautiful girl
One of these days shes gonna be one of my best friends she just doesnt know it yet
