Haltered (pretty quickly though still \\\"catching\\\" with small string), groomed all over, confidence building with rope, played movement games in arena and roundpen with small training stick (no string). Significant improvement in confidence all around. Any time worry comes up, slowing down and waiting gets him through it.
Groomed under willow tree - he was somewhat anxious here. More concerned on opposite side today vs. last time. Picked front feet - moderately accepting. HInds more anxious - completed a quick pick of both.
Caught him rather easily with savvy string (he looked a bit startled once rope was around his neck). A little hesitant to lead with string at first, made our way to halter and rope. Led out of pen, a bit concerned being away from herd. Went to arena next to herd, settled. Leading from zone 1. Handled head, fingers in side of mouth. Kathy gave shot and wormer. Rewarded with cookies. Picked up feet by going slow with request.
