I am sorry for the size of the pictures, I cropped them all but had no program to resize them with.


Any ways, I have not been able to see Cat in about two weeks and have been stuck at our other house due to lack of transportation. Yesterday I was able to get over to see my beautiful girl.

I love this mare to bits and I will never sell her... But boy is she sure flighty. From day one, we have never been able to catch her while she is in the field. Luckily our barn has a paddock attached to her field, which we have her walk her self in at dinner time. Every morning she is grained again, lightly brushed, fly sprayed and led out to the field on a lead. She good to work with... You just can't catch her
This is something I have and will keep working on... One day she'll be a pocket pest like the rest.


So yesterday I thought I would try free lunging her, in order to train her to come to me. I had my camera on hand, because I just think that she is so beautiful


She watch me walk out into the center of her field. She was so peaceful I didn't want to bother her:



But I asked her to trot and pushed her out to the rail ever so slightly and she sprung to life. She started trotting so vividly, she takes my breath away:





She loves to trot and she rarely canters, but I asked her to, and she just floated around. I think she looks so beautiful and happy here:





Then I asked her to slow down and take it easy. She broke from her fire-y canter to a light springing jog trot:



I eased her to a walk and praised my special girl
I snapped an apple into 3 or 4 pieces. I asked her to stop and I approached her. I tossed an apple piece towards her and she came closer and ate it up. I repeated that with the apple until she came to just under a meter or so away. I placed the last piece where I was standing and then I left. I praised her again and I went and got her a flake of hay.

A few hours later, she was done with her hay, she went back to resting under the shady tree in her field
:



Now I noticed that she has lost some weight. I have since increased her hay and grain. She is my project and I'm just going to keep working with her
Thanks for letting me share my love
