Well, this morning I got Maggie on the stand and I guess I was to close as she would stop eating her grain. I then closed the head bar on her and she freaked out! And struggled and fell/jumped off the stand. I will try again tomorrow. What I'm going to do today, not feed them as much so that she will be really wanting her grain in the morning, put her on the stand, NOT close the head bar, and step away from her and let her eat in peace. I will do that for a few days then go back to touching her and getting her used to be handled again. I'm kind of mad at myself for letting all that work last summer go to waste over the winter and starting new again! Both girls need their hooves trimmed but again, they have not been handled that much in the winter so I have to start at the beginning.
Harvey was a big game hunter this morning. Brought me back a shrew. It was tiny but Harvey acted like it was a big bad mouse. He was rather proud of it.
