In the course of the two several years (five/8/11-five/26/thirteen) that I mentored Pixie I assumed you could be fascinated in the video clips, images and the details.
five/8/11 is when I trailered an additional horse to be dropped off at this house and I was to decide on up Pixie from the very same foster house. On the day I was to decide on her up, it was no surprise, the day and time was verified. No person was house when we arrived. I even tried out to contact the rescue to get some recommendations. Pixie was in a small paddock/pasture. She was not catchable. It was so disheartening, that I was heading to abort the pickup. I realized then she was heading to be a good deal of perform. But my girlfriend explained “let’s attempt we have to at least get that halter off of her”. We dissemble some cattle panels the home-owner experienced all-around a garden. It took a whilst to corner her, but we did handle to do so. As soon as Pixie was caught she was polite and cooperative. She loaded and traveled again to my location with out incident.
I returned her to the BEHS rescue with a 2yr history/ information of up to date vaccinations, enamel floated, farrier perform, & latest coggins. To this date, (six/2013) she is the very same way to capture. In the course of her continue to be with me, I would have to put her in my round pen. Meals is not a reward or enticement. The food items lured her into the round pen. She does not affiliate the food items/ treat as a reward, therefor has never ever been effortless to capture. It just isn’t right until she is asked to shift her toes in all instructions to the point that she tires and offers. That can be one/2 hr. to an hour. When she is in my round pen haltered and a lead rope is hooked up, dragging the lead rope, I can wander into the round pen to capture her. It does not take but a couple minutes for her to stage on the lead rope to know or affiliate that I have the rope. She then will give me two eyes. To hobble this pony in Leslie and my impression is incorporating to her frightful pressure. I am not towards hobbling, it just just isn’t in Pixie’s finest desire, in my impression. She just isn’t a necessarily mean pony, incredibly frighten and terrified. But I can’t get her self-assurance up or to have confidence in me. I did make some headway with her. Much more video clips to appear.
