Today was Day Four of Star’s trailer loading training.
On Day Three, Star put his two front legs inside the trailer, while his hind two stayed firm on the ramp. It didn’t last long, but it was a huge improvement over the previous session. So long as there is forward motion with each session, I find I can muster a whole lotta patience. The pay-off is so worth it.
For your Photos of the Day…I never thought a set of horse legs could look so gratifying…or make me so happy.
May I present …FOUR ON THE FLOOR!!! I even had witnesses, although they were busy looking for crumbs from my secret bribery technique…Then suddenly eight more legs loaded!!!There is much more to this story but alas…it’s late…and Thursday Night Football has begun.
Let me part with this sweet photo from the StarBuck farm. It was a nice diversion in the middle of teaching a stubborn mule to load…
