I put Mariah out into the big pasture for a bit over three months, to give her a break, let her adjust, and hopefully let her make her own decisions.
A few weeks ago I brought her back into the smaller pasture. I've only put her in the round pen twice since bringing her back in, but its going very well. While in the round pen she has learned that she shouldn't turn her bum to me.. if she turns, it has to be inwards.
She will also now approach me outside. Today was great.. I took a treat out and walked out. I was about 6 feet away from her, stopped, and held out my hand. She came to me, took the treat, and stuck around. I am able to pet her nose, but just barely, and lightly. But even with my petting attempts she stays. I'm very excited about really working her again!
