I can’t tell you how excited I am that I finally got a harness on Ruth!
When we received her as a free gift over a year ago and she was w-i-l-d… but she has also amazed us constantly!
I have been working with her every morning for a few months; brushing her and talking to her.
After a few weeks I started to hold the harness in my hand while I brushed her.
At first I held it just in my hand…, then on her back…, then near her face.
One day she was curious about it and smelled it.
So the next day I put it on her. She was a little annoyed.
I quickly took it off of her…, which was much more difficult than getting it on…
because she was annoyed ;p
Today I put it on her again and she handled it very well.
She even let me lead her a bit with it!
I am sooo excited!
Today I left it on her….so I could get pictures;P
I figure I can take it off of her later, when she goes in the barn for the night.
Next I will get her feet trimmed!
And then I will be working to get her to let me ride her 🙂
