When Blu would look back at me, I would gently catch and cradle his head and release him when he wanted me to. Reverse psychology.
When Blu wanted to pick on Hoosier, I gently shooed Hoosier away. I could tell that had an effect on Blu.
I walked away to the round pen and he followed me all the way. It was a very lovely feeling—one that made it VERY difficult to leave. When I went to the rp, Misty came around, too. She stood by the rp through every undemanding time I had with Blu this past week.
When I did leave, Blu followed me. Tonight felt so good and I really felt like a passive, gentle leader and like I was flowing with the go and going with the flow. I feel like it was a good place to move on to the next step
