Loved my help!

I am so happy my Parelli friend came out Friday night to give me her pointers. I was correct in my theory's and my friend did notice that I was basically yelling too loud at Enzo with my energy. That is what is causing Enzo to leave our circle game. Not literally was I yelling at Enzo, LOL! But with my body, carrot stick and inner energy. Enzo understands the rules of the game now. I just have to ask NICELY to play the game with me. Which is what I suspected and I would leave also! So I am going to try to totally start over on our circle game. I am going to go much slower and move my body with much LESS energy sent towards Enzo. I also found out my driving game needs some work as well. I need to go back to my phases and get Enzo to really back up with a lighter feel and energy. Sometimes I needed to always to go to phase 4 to get Enzo to really respect my space on backing. On Saturday and Sunday I just did really fun things with Enzo. Since I now had played the circle game the last 2 times that I had seen Enzo. I surely don't want to turn the circle game into the circle game torture. So I played with Enzo and his huge soccer ball for a while. We played touch it, sideways, squeeze game and tons of friendly game with some added treats! He loves food. Even on Sunday Enzo apparently thought my glove was worth eating! I had taken my gloves off while I was brushing Enzo's mane and had placed them on the ground off to the right. A little later I happened to look down on the barn isle way and had noticed 1 of my gloves disappeared??? Then I looked at Enzo and he was standing there looking like he was chewing on gum!!!! I freaked and tried to get the glove out many times, but it was way too far back into his mouth. Finally I gave up, since it was only a tiny cotton glove from the dollar store. I figured it would pass. As I did this and went back to brushing Enzo's mane. Enzo finally opened his mouth and spit his tongue out and threw the glove right on the ground. Needless to say, the glove didn't make it and ended up in the garbage, yuck! So from now on I guess, I'll have to watch where I lay my gloves, LOL. I am really looking forward to this Thursday! Another extra day to see my boy Enzo and getting to spend quality time with him with out stress of works hours or missing the day light! Here is another fall picture! Enjoy and create great moments~Janine and Enzo!


  1. Ha ha! Mouthy boy! Glad you found what the culprit was and can work on it...isn't it such a relief when you know it's fixable??! xo

  2. You two take such gorgeous pictures! I'm glad your friend was able to help you. :) Chrome does the same thing with my gloves. It always scares me when he gets something in his mouth and it disappears, but he's always spit it out again thank goodness!!! I think he's trying to give me a heart attack sometimes lol. :)
