Trying to make the horse spook under controlled conditions. I waved the noodle around his head, while he was in a halter and then when he stopped, I let him know he was a good boy. By the end of the session, I was lightly bopping him with it between his ears and he stood firm. I then touched his sides, his belly, his legs, etc. with it and everytime he stopped moving or reacting, he got praised. Finally I was tossing it lightly at his back legs and he didn't react.

This is why I asked the southern peeps if anyone had a beach ball. I want to use it to sack him out also.

Thanks for the links Laura - I read the first one and thought it really cool that the horse sacked her back with the blanket. I didn't know any of this stuff.

Shoulda done it with Harper - still spooked by plastic bags - LOL

Jakey is such a sweet helper! So far Daisy just thinks our horses are giant playmates, haha!

That's all they had! I told you I'm in MI and the noodles are basically gone. This is the last one they had.
