|Combing Marley's forelock for the first time|
Other training for today included more lunging (Marley cantered today!), brushing, picking up front feet (which he still isn't too sure about), touching his back, belly, butt, tail... He's coming along nicely. He also let me comb his forelock for the first time, so I was pretty excited about that. On a side note, a helicopter was flying back and forth because of a fire not far from the barn. It was the first time, since the first day of training, that I saw Marley ever really jump sideways and want to bolt. He responded when I pulled him in, and I proceeded to feed him and talk to him until it went away. Interesting.
Sandee from Forever Yours Photography (photographer who visited us on our first day) sent some more photos over as well, so I'll post a few of them here, as well as on Marley's facebook page. If you haven't seen his facebook page yet, just search "Marley the Mustang" on facebook, then "like" him to view lots of photos and conversations about his progress. Thank you again for all of your support and for taking the time to read about our journey.
