Well, it has been a while! I have been entrenched in Connection Training…and horses, of course! I am trying to get all pieces of my life working in unison but all of this juggling is tricky business. I have some updates coming in the near future.

Meanwhile, I have some Ask Shawna questions and answers to share. Here is Kathleen’s question:

“I want to teach my horse to not be fearful of the clippers. He is an Icelandic and has to be trace and body clipped at certain times of the year. He is SO fearful he strikes at me in defense. Very dangerous. He clamps his mouth at times when i try to reward with a tiny carrot.”
