Guide to Halter Training - Part 7: the gate and back
The moment of truth...will they walk to the gate and back down the race on their leads, a distance of about 10 metres? Bella - didn't even look up from the bucket. Romeo - a little more cautious but made it all the way there and back. Prince Naveen is so small and meek he just goes wherever. Princess Jasmine...I'll leave until tomorrow... I do it with a few other alpacas milling around so that they don't get spooked by being on their own and just keep calling them towards the bucket of nuts. Works for most but not all (Jasmine I have a bad feeling about you...). Must be time for a celebratory wine.
