He's been doing great. All the storms were actually beneficial as there was a lot of catching, haltering, and leading back and forth between the barn and pasture. There was one day recently when he was very worried about things, and stepped back when I approached. But, he didn't leave and he didn't flinch when I touched him. Most of the time, he comes to greet me and one day he even nickered when he saw me standing at the fence.
Robin Gates, a renowned liberty clinician. I didn't hear back, and figured she was no longer giving clinics. I forgot all about it, to be honest.
Last week she sent me an email. She was very seriously injured a few years ago and is only now starting to get back to work. We had a long conversation about horses, and trauma, and connection. She said she would be happy to work with me and Tex. Can you imagine doing stuff like this? The connection? The fun?
In late May, Brett will trailer Tex and I to her Sonoma ranch for an intensive three or four day clinic. I am so excited. So. Excited. She said Brett can watch, and take pictures, so I can share it all with you.
