I'm not kidding, I wish I was. Do you know how much of a parent failure it is to own a horse for three months and then realize she doesn't know her name?
On Saturday, Jay's family was here to meet Copper and Skeeter was mugging his mom, so I tried to call her off. It's not that she was ignoring me, because she didn't even flick an ear.
It dawned on me that she just hears human voices and comes to the fence. It doesn't matter what is being said, she hears human voices and goes toward them.
I tried it out a couple of times. Nope, does not know her name. I'm such a bad mommy.
Luckily, I had already ordered some clicker training materials, so I know what we're going to work on: coming when called.
Mom and Bill were in town today and spent some time introducing the clicker. She's not "getting" it yet, but she will, she's a smart cookie.
