I've finally settled on a name for my filly. Her name is Oskadis, which in the Icelandic language means Wish Fairy. I will call her Oska for short. The name fits her, I think. If you have ever tried to search the Icelandic language for a feminine, pretty name, you will learn that it will take you weeks. In my opinion, it's not a romantic language.
Oska has her ups and downs. At first she was a real sweetheart and very interested in attention. Then after a while she started to walk away if you came into the pen and avoid you. Now that her Icelandic yearling friend has gone home to her family, Oska is back to being more friendly again.
When she walks away from me, I then drive her away, then retreat when she gives me signs (licking, chewing, dropping head, stopping and turning to face me). She gets love when this is done. I also do not leave the pen when she's walked away from me. I make sure that I walk away from her, when I'm done.
I'm really not 100% sure I'm doing this stuff right, but I'm trying and trying to do what is logical.
I've been working with the lead rope, rubbing it on her, flipping it over her neck, wrapping it around her nose. Then finally I put a halter on her. Here is a video of that:
