Updates on the mini's!
Update on the 4 large minis (Alice, Roo, Jill and Mollie) who were roaming 15+acres! They have now been with us for a little less than a month. We have been working with them on a daily basis to help Mollie and Jill lose weight especially, have all four get used to us, and learn that halters aren’t so bad. They still spook each other from time to time over simple human movements, but for the most part they’ve come leaps and bounds!
We have been working with the minis for almost two months now and they have been moving in huge strides! They have lost tons of weight, been practing frequently with halters and leads and their fear of them has dramatically decreased. Originally, the first sight of a halter would send them jetting off in the opposite direction. We have also been trying to teach them to lift their hooves so that it will be easier to repair and treat their white line disease over time. They love to be brushed now and fight over who gets to go first. Alice is still quite hesitant in trying new things but we will continue to work with her and helping her overtime to heal the problems specifically with her hooves, as she has the most issues with them.
Mollie and Roo!
Remember the extremely overweight and unhealthy mini’s loose on 15+ acres completely scared of leads, halters, the vet, farrier, etc.?
