I have thoroughly enjoyed Shiloh this summer. I bought her at the end of the school year and we have been having fun getting to know each other.
Shiloh is not a fan of crossing water. She doesn't have much experience on a daily basis so I've been trying to coax without too much fuss. To me it seems so simple- just walk in it, it will feel good, you can even have a sip. But no. I'm afraid to her she sees a monster that will rise up from the depths. Regardless this was my goal.
There is a small creek that we have been practicing on but every time we get to it she stops and won't budge. Today I tried taking her to the creek in her halter and a bucket with grain. You can see by the pictures that she wasn't won over enough.
|I put the bucket in the water thinking it would cause her to come closer, that she did but not enough to get her feet wet.|
