Karin used it first to lunge her then placed the tarp on the ground.
Cokes's worry cup filled rapidly and she let out some bucks and kicks but when the tarp didn't move she slowed down and started thinking instead of letting that flight instinct take over.
She willingly walked over the tarp before too long.
When she was comfortable with walking all over it Karin asked her to stop and started picking up one corner and letting the wind blow it up.
Coke was more curious than afraid after a few minutes.
Even when the tarp blew up onto her legs and belly she didn't move and wasn't afraid.
Karin draped the tarp over Coke both from the left and the right.
She ten tied it loosely onto the saddle and asked Coke to move.
This mare did very well dragging the tarp around.
Karin asked her to trot and canter carrying the tarp but Coke figured out very quickly the tarp is not something to be afraid of.
Next the tarp was hung onto the railing and the breeze moved it around. Even that didn't seem to be much of a problem.
Karin laid the tarp back down and let Coke stand on it while she desensitized her with the whip hitting the tarp.
The tarp was taken out and Karin mounted Coke and just had her take a few steps each direction and back.
She actually surprised us with how quickly she turned to face the tarp.
Below she is curious and watching the tarp as Karin walked around with it.
Check out her reaction when Karin asked her to step onto the tarp.
It took about a half hour for her to feel comfortable enough to walk on it.
Karin was able to rub it all over her without a huge reaction.
Indy was checked next. She is starting to bag up, hopefully we will have a baby soon. Karin left for Funday Monday and I left for Sam's Club then Berean. This evening Taunya and the kids came over for supper. We served bbq ribs, water melon, and asparagus. Taunya said there was a big group of kids over for Funday Monday at Rachel's. All but 1 of my grandchildren. Next Monday I must quit work earlier and join in the fun. This evening Spark, Rhonda, mom and I played games at mom's.
