Today was day seven of mine and Tarot’s self haltering training. Today we achieved buckling the halter – success! Tarot has the rough components of self haltering now. I realized I still need work on smoothly and uniformly tossing the crown piece over his head to make the process less tedious. I had originally made the noseband as large as possible to make it an easy target, so that needs to be made smaller as well. And I want to capture a bit better “freeze” once the crown piece is over his head.
But, we have a new, lovely behavior and get to move forward into some foundation lessons while refining this one.
