Training day 12

Tuff is getting real good about picking up his hooves for Kirstin. He stands perfectly still for her.
The rear hooves were a problem in the beginning. He would let Kirstin pick them up, but he would try to pull them away. He is much more trusting of her now and doesn't mind her picking up his rear hooves.

Her newest training is teaching him to yeild his hindquarters. He picked up on this very quickly and is a pro at yeilding his hindquarters.
But yeilding his fore quarters wasn't as easy. He hasn't completely grasped the idea. Kirstin can get one cross over but he starts walking forward after that one cross over.
