I let Shelby out onto the lawn by herself today. I want her to know that it's okay for her to be separate from her buddies and have me around. I didn't harass her, but I followed her around and she eventually followed me back into the pasture.
She is prone to biting and she's threatened to kick a few times, so I've been walking around her and just patting her like a "normal" horse. She's laid her ears back, but when she realizes I'm not focusing solely on her, she's fine. I just want her to be a happy part of the herd for awhile. Well, that and it's raining cats and dogs and I hate traipsing through the muck to work on specific lessons.
