whistling sticks

After giving Koda & Nemo a couple days off, Brad was back at it and worked on desensitizing last night. He had their attention while swinging our new carrot stick w/rope near them while it whistled - it didn't take long to get them to stand still:
  
We had an audience, the resident pony Barbi who followed me everywhere, she clearly wants attention.....
 

No whistling sticks this morning, instead trailer loading with shipping boots on for the first time. Nemo did great, Koda did fine with the boots, but still needs work on feeling more secure in the trailer...if only we could find out what makes that horse tick - our job would be a whole lot easier!!
