As you can probably gather from the above picture, Juniper wasn't super happy about halter training at first.
She caught on really quickly though. She even yielded her fore and hindquarters a couple times. Unlike her spoiled herd mates who were mobbing us and almost impossible to move.
I found a fun new app called Photo Lab:
I took the halter off and rubbed her a lot, and I can't remember exactly what she did, but she let me know she wanted me to put it back on and play some more. So we did. She just loved the attention. When I took it off and walked around she stayed with me and mildly tried to boss me around a bit, telling me to stay put and rub her. I didn't let her tell me where to go but she did get lots more love.
I got a closer look at her teeth and she is a two year old. I'm no expert on donkey growth but I doubt she'll grow much more. That's OK. I already love her. I'll train her to pack and pull a cart if we can't ride.
Also, in regards to teeth, her premolars are a mess! I know she's at the age for the caps to be shedding and her permanent teeth to be coming in, so it's normal, but I wonder if it's making eating difficult.
She loves ginger snaps. (Scout and Duncan think they're poison though).
She likes to sniff noses and considers being naughty and nibbling my nose.
She has such a lovely snoot.
I may have ownership by Wednesday. I hope so. And I hope the roads are free of snow & ice so I can go get her.
