The bit I ordered for Gitta came and it is much nicer for her. A 4.5"" Happy Mouth. it is the straight one with the nubbys on it. The 5"' split rubber snaffle was too much bit for her mouth.
I tried the Duet on her and fits her great, lots of room in the gullet.
Also bought her a blanket as I will need to clip her long coat before she goes to get backed the end of February. That is next on the list, getting her accustomed to the noise of clippers.
Still working with her on the plastic bags. She doesn't like the noise, but settles quickly. Kind of goes e-w-w-w gross when I take them down her legs. Does not threaten to kick or strike me at all. Just lifts her leg up and away from me. good girl!
