Completed the 60 Day Challenge

So the challenge is over. For Gypsy it ended with a celebration. She is in the process of being adopted. The skills she learned during the challenge were a major contributor to her presenting so well when her potential adopter came to look at her the first time. I started working with her several weeks before the challenge began. At the start I could not get within 20 feet of her. She came to the Days End after being on the lam for eight years. When her adopter came for her first visit we demonstrated the full range of skills we learned during the challenge and then some – from turning on the hind and forehand, leading and backing to sending in either direction which turned into lunging, stopping to face me then changing direction or just changing direction on the feel of lead line, trotting over a tarp and between two barrels, responding to the flag while I stood on a mounting block and standing quietly while it was energetically waived above her poll and below her jaw and lifting her feet while ground tied. But we went further and showed her adopter a little work at liberty – following me onto a wooden bridge and backing off, walking, trotting, halting and backing in concert with me, and following me between two barrels, over a tarp and over a little jump. Gypsies toughest challenges turned out to be being ready to catch (she still is not consistent) and vet prep (clippers remain a little terrifying.) The adoption process is not complete, but when Gypsy does leave for her forever home Plan 4 Progress will be a major reason she made it from surviving by her wits to a better life.

Catching Practice

Getting used to the web site again. From June 3 to June 5 we had 4 sessions each about 15 minutes in length working on catching. The first 3 sessions were in a day pen. The first session I practiced just approaching, getting Gypsy to yield her hind quarters and look at me with both eyes. The session ended when she let me approach and rub her on forehead and eventually her neck. The second session we picked up where we left off and practiced approaching and rubbing and getting her used to me standing directly in front of her or next to her shoulder. The third session we reviewed everything and then began haltering her. I discovered that the rope halter I have is too short to just lift the nose band over her muzzle after slipping the halter over her ears so I had to untie and the tie it properly after fitting it on completely. Our last session was in the pasture. It was the first time she had been let into the grass without a halter and caught there. Very satisfying.
