Bitzy and the flag!
You can sure tell spring is here with the wind we are having. Happens every year and can be a pain in the, well you know what. Horses don’t like it . I don’t like it. Can just be hard to get anything done because of it.
Yesterday I worked with Bitzy a little in the morning and rather then tie her up outside in the wind I tied her to the rail in the barn. Kept her out of the wind and me too.
Today we will try to get a little done outside and then see how the wind treats us.
All in all good progress with Bitzy. She is still uncertain about the things we are doing. She does them, but she is still a bit jumpy and that is just going to take time.
Time is a hard thing to sell to most folks that own horses. We live in a “now” generation where all you have to do is get online and have whatever your heart desires in your home the next day. It don’t work that way with horses. They don’t wear a watch and care very little about time. So, to reach a horses mind and heart you have to take the time it takes. I get folks who ask me, “how long is it going to take to get my horse to “? You can fill in the blank. My answer is always the same. “It’s going to take whatever time it takes and the horse is the one who will decide that”.
So when working with your horses don't be in a hurry. Enjoy the time you can spend with them and take as much time as it takes.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
