How to Catch a Thoroughbred

Step 1: Obtain carrot, apple, or other treat. Be sure to have two of whatever you choose. More on this in steps 5 and step 8

Step 2: Give Denali benefit of the doubt and call for horse. Smile when she looks at you, walks away and goes back to eating (so much for coming to me every time I call for her. )

Step 3: Walk into field 10 steps. Call horse again.

Step 4: Call different horse. Any horse other than the horse that you want. Ignore Denali.

Step 5: Give treat to other horse. Pet them.

Step 6: In .5 seconds Denali will be there. Watch out so that you don't get run over. Step out of way.

Step 7: Ignore Denali. Walk away. She will follow you.

Step 8: Pet horse. Give meds. Give treat

Step 9: Great success!

Soooo true about ignoring the horse you want and suddenly, they're there! Excellent advice!

Good for you for outsmarting her. She's not as cool and aloof as she'd like to make out.
