Iris: July 8

Iris has been well. There are good days & other questionable ones where she wants to kick. It's almost as if there's an invisible barrier just in front of her hindquarters. The kicking remains the predominant issue to really making the progress that I would like.

We're currently going back through the Leading by the Feet & will likely move forward with Laying Down. We had started the Leading by the Feet last year but didn't complete it as that had been around the time we questioned a pain-related issue to be the cause of the kicking.

I'm still not fully sure that we've nicked that in the bud. I'm doing my best to listen to what she may be trying to tell me. Especially after Luna, who was screaming for someone to listen. Somedays, I feel I may be listening "too much." Not a bad thing, of course, but it's something I've grappled with being a professional trainer who typically has a rough deadline for the progress to be made & needs to be conscious about owner finances.

Do you have any plans to make a trip back to Nebraska in the next couple of months? If so, I would really love for you to visit Iris in person.

At this moment, what are your current expectations for both myself & Iris? Keep on as we have been? Try a more frequent approach with Jen's modalities? Add something from your areas of expertise? Move to two-a-day sessions to see how she progresses?


Next week's update will be posted Friday.
