"Ermahgawd, what are you doing???"
I was all ready to post gorgeous photos of my redheaded filly in her shiny new blue rope halter--but I have a redheaded filly, so she instead remembered that she *hates* new things that smell of Store, and only wanted to wear Blaze's stanky old green halter. She is SO her mother's daughter. New halter? Eyeballs wide, snorting, jumping away. Old horsey smelling halter? Sticks her nose in it and waits to be done up.
Still, she hasn't done her "catch me not" thing in ages (knocking on all nearby wood) which is wonderful! Matter of fact I can barely catch and get Blaze out the gate without her Ninja-ing her way along with us :-)
Hey, Blaze wears her blue well
Blaze has general contempt for being clean and tidy. Actually even if you halter him,walk out, turn in a circle, and put him right back in the pasture he will roll and roll like he's been contaminated. Certainly keeps him flexible and well adjusted!
