Today is the first day of our journey together and I have to say I did have some vain hope that she would just stand there and let me trim her feet but it was not to be!!! Within 10 seconds it became obvious that trimming was not going to happen, Fleur was never going to make it that easy! Megan held her halter and just with me looking at her from about 3 meters away caused Fleur to stiffen. If I went closer Fleur would try to move away…..picking up her feet was not on her agenda. I took Fleur for a little walk in the paddock, she was very nervous, circling around me even though I was not asking anything of her. I just tried to keep my body language and energy as quiet as possible. Eventually she would graze behind me but if I turned she would be off again. After about half a hour she felt brave enough to come in and stand just to the side of me out of my direct line vision about a meter away. As long as I didn’t try and interact with her she would stand quietly and that is where we left it for the day.
