Water Worx! “Jynx” #1

Coal, Chylly & Jynx

So – “Jynx” was also introduced to water.  Like “Koal” she hasn’t had as much halter/leading work.  She did a lot of backing up that doesn’t show in these pics, LOL.  I did use a butt rope for some of her work, but for the most part a quick pull and she responded by stepping forward, so not too bad at all.  I led her into the pond.

Here’s a pic before pond work –

A little unsure still as she checks out the water.

Sending her out on her own around me – in the pond.  She’s starting to relax.

I worked with her a bit close up, too.  Here’s one of those pics.

After “Jynx”s water worx, she was quite the shivery filly as the sun started going down.  So we did walk-a-bouts that included other obstacle work.  Will have to do pics another time, as neither Sierra nor I got pics.  She crawled/jumped over the black barrel (after touching it with her muzzle), stood (eventually) to be rubbed with a feed sack along the back of the boy’s paddock where it had gotten away, crossed over it – sometimes jumping; then along the Jr mares paddock, we did into and out of tire work.
