Bella and Roman

Bella is giving Roman "horse signs" that he needs to move-on. Ears back, teeth, snaking neck. Scares me, but macho Roman couldn't care less. I've even seen Bella flash the stink-eye at him if he dare to get close to her bucket. Speaking of teeth, she has a new incisor (right on schedule.)
I think Bella secretly likes Roman's soft fur but wants to make him think she's the boss.

I quietly slipped onto Bella's bare back yesterday. It was heavenly. We walked slowly around the arena and I quietly slipped back off. I hugged her neck and slowly got to the ground. Her only interest in this event was to turn around and sniff my leg, then she walked on gently. Our lessons are going forward so nicely.

What adorable photos! Somehow cats and horses have this connection - predator and prey animals in harmony. And you and Bella are getting on like a house afire - that's terrific! This is the way it should be - natural and gradual and no fighting. Well done!!

Bella will eventually learn that cats rule wherever they go. I like Roman's style. :o)

I don't know, Bella's eye looks pretty soft to me. I think she just likes touching the cat....although, being a girl, she must be coy about it. LOL
