I've been so busy with the dogs, goats and chickens that I've sort of been ignoring the equine members of the family. :( Sometimes I wonder if I have myself stretched too thin. It'll be okay though.
I've been doing some research on using clicker training to make contact with wild and wary horses (or donkeys) and I think I'm going to start working with Zeppelin and the clicker. I'm worried about messing up Chrome's training though because he's so new to the clicker and I'd be using it in his hearing. I might have to use a whistle or tongue click. I'll think on it.
I don't know when I'll start working on this. I think the reason I've procrastinated for so long is because I'm trying to do too much. Think about it. I have Storm, Jackal, Chrome, Aslan and now Zeppelin that I want to clicker train! Yikes. There are only so many hours in a day. I do think this is necessary though because Zep has gotten a lot more comfortable around us but he still refuses to be touched and I really need to work on his feet. Now that the ground is drying out they're starting to crack. Wish me luck!!
