So, what do you all do with your 18 month olds? I'm running out of ideas quick, fast, and in a hurry! She already: Stands tied patiently Stands for all grooming, including bathing and clipping Loads/unloads on trailer Approaches/walks through anything scary you ask of her Stands perfectly still to have a Wal-Mart bag of aluminum cans dumped over her head Has very good ground manners Gives to pressure well Has been introduced to saddle Yesterday I longed her for about 5 mins. on each side at a slow walk to start to install voice commands so we could start ground driving her soon, as that is one thing we had not gotten around to. After the total of ten minutes, she had voice cues picked up. Long-lined her, and felt like I was behind a horse that had been long-lining for years instead of 30 seconds...same results today, even when we worked down the road instead of just in the yard. Basically, after the first few minutes she was pretty much dying of boredom, except when we went down the road. We'll continue to long-line her down the road for experience, and work on perfectly refining her other skills, but what else can we do? She picks up on stuff SO fast that she is dying of boredom soon after you start something (someone's going to have fun starting her under saddle!) and at this point it is looking like a LONG year and a half before she is started under saddle.
