Everyone thinks the toe-sniffing is cute. Wink  For others who want to see that:

Is it just me/my 'puter, or is that clip really dark?  If it weren't for Vi's white patches, I'd've had trouble seeing her at all.

I taught my mom's Clyde to bend and touch your toe just as a giving to the bit / stretching exercise when he was more green. Now, if we're just standing around chatting or something and he gets bored, he'll start swinging his head all the way around alternately touching your toes in an effort to get the attention back on him. lol.

I'll say it again; she really does look great, WH. Looks like she's filling out her legs finally. Smiley

Nanny, in her depths of quirkyness, waits until after dark to do dangerous things.  If it works... Undecided

That's a good exercise; I've seen John Lyons use something like that.

And I agree, it looks like she's finally found some legs. Cheesy  Using the Rural Heritage calculations, she's right about 1,200 lbs now.  That's on grass and hay.  Nanny cut her concentrates to almost nothing.  So she'll have to be watched for diabetes-type disorders.

  It often does work.  With a horse that knows and trusts you, failing light can help them to overcome their fears of new experiences.  They turn to their handler for safety in the darkness.

I'll buy that.  Thanks. Smiley

It sounds like Nanny trains much as I did.  Think like a horse and the horse will learn faster, without nearly as much stress and you won't be mis-communicating.

In a week, Gen will begin training Big Boy (name will definitely be changing as that's just not going to work as a name for long).  He already leads and longes like a champ.  She's planning to use the same gentle methods.  And when she's got her own stable, she's planning to use the attachment training from the moment hoof hits the earth.  So much easier to train a horse that has been handled from birth on without break.

tehe. Me too. That's a new one, but I'll take it!

Although, having shown at relatively-familiar places at night, I think a lack of strong light to cast scary shadows might be desired. haha. I've no doubt shadows just make things ten times scarier than daylight.

Here is a shorter version if you don't want to slog through ten minutes:

I wanted to see the other video, but it seems it's still private, so I watched this one.

Vi is gorgeous! And she's very smart too. Smiley
