Grace had a big breakthrough and I have no pictures! John went out to play with her after work and she was still really not ready to stand still while he reached out with his hand to rub her neck. So he tried reaching out with a training stick and she stood there no problem! She's itchy, shedding her coat, so she really enjoyed being scratched all over her neck and chest with the stick. He inched his hand up and before you know it he was scratching all over her head, neck and shoulder. I got to scratch her jaw, under her chin, and around her ears from outside the pen. What a good girl! It'll be no problem at all to attach a lead rope when the time comes, and it looks like work with haltering isn't too far off. But for now she's really enjoying being scratched.
