    Darcy's Leadership

    Hi Luna, Ditto to everything Meredith said. You may just find Darcy really doesn't want to be that much of a leader. Im guessing Khmari is a new edition to your paddock? They will sort out how they feel about each other and before you know they will just be hanging out It just takes a bit of time.

    Uneven Shoulders

    Sounds like you’re on the right track Luna, I can really relate to those issues so I look forward to hearing how Darcy progresses.

    Proud flesh

    Hi Sarah To me the wound looks pretty good (not that I’m an expert) I’d say you are doing a good job with the treatment so be patient and just keep going what you’re doing. It doesn’t look inflamed or infected. I’d keep using the Manuka honey and yes I’d be nervous about the copper sulphate on skin. It takes at least 6 weeks for wounds to heal so I think you’re on track. Otherwise just ask your vet what he/she thinks.

    Saddle Care & Storage

    Hi Chrissie How nice is it to have a new saddle! I just store mine on a wooden towel stand (you can pick them up at the opp shop) but it does have pride of place in my bedroom and cover it to keep the dust off. i saddle soap mine probably every 6 months to really clean and condition it, but I also use saddle conditioner every now and then just to wipe the dust off and keep it clean. I don't personally use oil as I don't like the way it changes the leather and it can stretch the leather over time. Better to use a leather conditioner or saddle soap if you don't mind using some elbow grease

    Way to go Liv and Matilda

    what the??

    Yep, shavings for long distances is a great idea! Yes Shane the wild horses are very much habitual and territorial in marking their spot. Its part of the reason they get in so much trouble in the Kosi as there stallion piles along the highway marking their territory and they always go in the same spot so to the uninformed it makes it look like there's way more poo than there really is! Every morning Rors will pee when I let them all out into the grazing paddock... even thought their night paddock is still a decent size, & Jett always poos in the same spots. The others go wherever they please... including in my float! I think a lot of it has to do with their dominance and the pecking order of the herd. If they are pausing and pooing before going on the float ramp its a pretty good sign that your horse still isn't totally comfortable with the idea of being in there.

    Not wanting to be caught

    Absolutely Claire, ditto to everything Meredith has said, the E is sooooo important! I have a dominant mare too so I totally understand The other thing you may just want to double check is your body position if you're doing everything else right.. If I start having trouble with my approach again I revisit Shane's approach video with Hope and see if Ive missed something. Here is the link if you'd like to take a look http://www.quantumsavvy.com/board/index.php?/topic/9528-hopes-first-approach/&tab=comments#comment-108860

    what the??

    Sometime when you gotta go, you just gotta go! Rors prefers not to pee when on the float (Im sure she holds on for as long as she can...) but if she has to she will.

    Refining my contact

    Clancy and I have been working on this and I think a lot of it is going to come down to emotional fitness so he’ll soften lateral. Being the boy that he is, he takes being wrong very hard so I really need to step up and make more effort to help him be right. I think when this happens the rest will follow.
