I couldn't wait to get to the barn this morning. As soon as they'd eaten their breakfast, my husband and I ran out to do their TTouches. Unfortunately, we hadn't caught our pony, so she didn't get a session today.
It was a different day for both Beautiful and Cowboy. Cowboy was as calm as we've ever seen him and had totally bought into these sessions. We ran out of battery power during his taping, but it was all very relaxing. He didn't yawn at all. When we were done he was standing squarely on all four and stood balanced all day.
I learned a lot about pressure and little it takes to accomplish TTouch. I was pushing too hard and they trained me to lighten up and loosen my phalanges. I still have a lot to learn as I watch the tapes from today, the DVD, and refer back to the book, but the only way to learn at all is by doing it. You have to start somewhere, and, good news, they seem to make huge gains even with inept Touchers.
For the Sunday Stills I photographed liquids from around our house and our trip to Gig Harbor. I noticed I focused solely on runoff and melt, but I did think the ice and snow provided a great contrast to the liquid in ponds and harbors.
