MAGIC II joined Ashley’s string in April. Magic has a lot of spunk and is eager to work! She has shown some stress and aversion to nail trims, so Magic has been working with Ashley to build comfort and confidence with this. Magic has been showing progress in co-operative care and in her default focus for various distractions. So far, so good and we hope she continues to grow!
