Liberty, Trailer and Camp! (Part 1)

Hello my savvy friends! These last 3 or 4 days have been warm, beautiful and excellent! So let me tell you a little bit about them... :)
Well, I can start with Liberty. If you have been following me for a while, you would know that we have struggled with liberty outside of the round pen. Well on Friday, I discovered something amazing. Either I had underestimated my relationship with Sharlie and hadn't given Sharlie and the relationship to step into the light, or our relationship has grown quickly and quietly, but strongly. Shall I tell you what makes me think this? Well as I was pulling Sharlie out of the field, I swung the rope around her neck, tied it, then turned to lock the gate. Then I started walking over to Mom to ask her something. Sharlie was grazing when I closed the gate, and I didn't think she would go anywhere. Then something amazing happened! When I was half-way between Sharlie and Mom, Sharlie lifted up her head, looked and me, snorted and came walking with me! I experimented with this interesting event. We walked around a little...Sharlie sniffed a trailer but seemed disappointed it was closed. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Then Sharlie promptly went off to eat some grass while I gathered my Carrot Stick. When I returned, she did NOT want to stop eating. I was put out that this cool discovery was over. In fact, I was determined not to let it be the end. I quickly took her off the grass and started to walk. She seemed to understand the grass was not going to happen. Then she spotted something that did not occur to me. Since I was already walking into the barn, she followed. I noticed she was more enthusiastic this time. I thought I was doing good! LOL no.... Then she trotted and hopped into an open stall that had hay AND food all ready inside! I tried to get her out but she was giving me the no-way-in-heck-am-I-getting-out-of-here!!!!! Look. So I had to coax her out. Silly girl. She seemed dissapointed but relaxed into a steady canter nicely once we were away from the barn. We had a good play session with a great trailer dinner. End of Part 1!

END OF PART 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!
