Cute new Buttercup happenings...
I've been working with her to get her to trust me. Lots of patience and kissing noises have gotten her to the point where she will now come up to me without me asking. This is great. I can pick up all four feet. I can touch her pretty much anywhere without her getting scared. I need to halter train her very soon, so I've been taking the halter with me every time I go out to feed her. No need to put it on her just yet, but I've been keeping it in my hand as I rub her down, getting her used to the sensation. Hopefully one of these days, she'll just let me slip it right over her nose without a fuss.
I can't wait to hang out with her for the next 25 or 30 years. I'm going to make her the best horse she can possibly be.
