Sometimes it's the simplest things that make me happy. Probably MOST of the time it's the simple things.
Yesterday was the first time I put a halter on Chy all by myself. It may seem like a small thing to many of you but to me it was pretty huge. Every day I was letting her sniff it and tell me she didn't want any part of it. I'd go along with that but then realized I wasn't getting any farther with her. It was time to show her I was serious. I closed her in her barn and did something like I saw the farrier do, I put a rope around her neck and let her take me for several laps around the barn. Finally she stopped and stood very still and let me put it on her. I was so proud of her and me.
