J and I were checking cattle this week when I saw a starling fly out of this fence post. So of course I had to look inside.
Way down there, there are 4 pretty blue eggs.
Then I couldn't resist the view in the other direction of the fence continuing out of sight.
Not a whole lot to report on Sweetwater since I didn't have all that much time to work with her today. She is still improving on letting me approach, she is good with brushing for the most part but still terrified of the rope. I am really wanting to get her more desensitized to it before I try to snap it onto her halter. At the stage she is at I know she will go ballistic.
I managed this after she spooked herself and spun around twice while I was letting one end dangle over her neck. After spinning the rope trapped itself around her withers and shoulders. She ran back and forth bouncing off the walls until she finally realize the the pressure would stop if she stopped. It is so frustrating that every little thing just sets her off. And her one reaction to everything is to run.
Then I see that trainers # 1 and #2 are both riding hers now.
