Training continues.

I clean her front hooves out every time I go out there for her training sessions. She needs to get used to having her hooves tapped on, brushed off, etc.

I started work today on getting her used to picking up her back feet.

She needs improvements on her ground work, she lags behind when being led. She stops. She gets in front of me when I ask her to stop.

She tried to nip me today, and twice she turned her butt towards me when I was lunging her, and one time, she hunched her back but didn’t follow through with a buck.

I worked on her responsiveness during leading, the whoa, backing, turning, and rubbed the lunge whip all over her body, then took the leadrope and scratched her head and neck with it.

She did a lot of snorting at me today.
