He figured he knew what she was thinking and he gave a wounded huff at her, staring into her soul it seemed, almost willing her to give him some fish or something else to eat. Jack sighed a little and patted him on the neck, allowing him to get back up so he wasn't laying down for too long. It seemed like it might hurt a little to stay like that for too long at least, she didn't want to do that to him right now, she figured. Jack took a few steps back and pointed to the ground, "Lay, Given." The Wiurn huffed but finally laid down after a few seconds, much to her pleasure, and she made sure he knew by petting him on the neck, rubbery skin running underneath her fingers lightly. It was almost time for him to get into the water, he was starting to dry a little bit.
Last time, if he did this they would be done and move on to something new. It was nice to know he could learn things if he wanted to, it was just getting him to want to. He was dramatic and everything all the time, everything done with a bit of a flourish. "Given, lay," she told him sternly, pointing to the ground, and the Wiurn laid down and looked up at her, his neck snaking over to sniff at the pouch with his nose, to which she pushed him away with a stern no. He was terrible about that as well, and she hoped he would finally be a little less food oriented than anything else for awhile soon. Maybe once her clickers came in she could get him trained a little bit, but she wasn't going to hold her breath for that either. She sighed, she just didn't know.
Now for the interesting part, she figured with a little sigh, checking off on her training list in her head. He had to be able to tolerate her moving him around if they were going to be working together for the foreseeable future she figured, and it would certainly help when it came to mount training, she figured with a little smile. Moving closer to the Wiurn, she picked up one of his wings, but he yanked it back with a bit of a hiss. That wasn't good, she glared at him and did it again, though he pulled it back again. Jack sighed a little and then reached out and took his wing at the same time she gave him a fish. Maybe that was alright, she figured, maybe things would work out if she just gave him food, but she really didn't know at this point or anything, it was all speculation.
She wanted to ride him eventually, through the air and through the water, but that would take some time and so would all of this, she figured with a little sigh in her voice. She needed him to cooperate with her, which was certainly hard for him to do, she figured with a little frown at her Wiurn. Everything would be fine though, nothing else was going to be wrong with how things were going to happen. Jack reached out for his wing again and this time he let her handle it for a few seconds before it was snatched back. Hey though, it was progress! Tossing him a little fish, she wondered what she was going to do about things from now on, it was going to be a difficult training list, ands he was running out of time so far, so hopefully she could get him trained rather quickly soon.
He had to let her move him whenever it came time to put the saddle on him and everything else, she figured with a frown on her face. He was starting to do it, just not enough for her liking whatsoever. Jack pushed her hair back and then took his wing gently once again, giving him a fish as she did so and then tried to move it but he yanked it back just in time for it to pull away from her. She chuckled a little, he was a proud animal, she had to give him that much she figured with a smile on her face, so this would be harder than the others so far of course, but that was fine she figured with a determined nod. At least she was getting a few things done at this point, it was more than she could say about her other animals right now.
Jack reached for his wing again and he let her move it a little before he extracted it out of her hand once again. This wasn't before she had given him a fish though! Things were looking up at the moment she thought for a bit, and she wondered what she was going to do about what she needed from him sooner or later. Jack smiled a little and patted his neck, wondering if he was ever going to get bigger and bigger or not, but it didn't matter if he did, she figured, she liked him the way he was at the moment. She reached out for his wing again and moved it a little bit before letting go on her own and not having him yank it out of her hand, which he himself seemed pleased with as well. Jack gave him another fish, wondering if things were going to go well for them or not.
Good, now he was getting more and more used to her moving parts of him, that was great! She reached out and fed him while she moved one of his wings around for a little while, and she was pleased with he didn't yank it back, though he did start to pull a little from time to time when he felt it had been too long. Still though, Jack was pleased and gave him another fish. She needed to make sure she could move all of him though and have him not tug or anything she figured with a little smile on her face, because that wouldn't do at all. She watched him gulp down the fish and then sniff at her pouch for more of them, making her chuckle a little bit as she tried to figure out what to do with him for a little while at that. Maybe they needed to move on, but not yet.
If everything went well with this, they would move on to some of his mount training next she figured with a little smile on her face as she reached out for his other wing. He let her move it around a bit as she fed him, showing him she was doing something good, worth praising and all that, but she didn't know what to do with things just yet. Soon enough she would go for his legs and his tail, making sure to show him that she meant no danger to him and all that. Already he was fine with his wings, the testing had shown that she figured as she let go of his wing, smiling whenever he tucked it up against himself again. He didn't understand what this was for, but that was fine, he was an animal and that didn't mean much, not really even that clever, at least the species, but that was fine, she still loved him.
Jack squatted down and moved one of Given's feet, much to his annoyance and he pulled it out of her hand. She grumbled at him a little bit and shook her head, she didn't know what to think about him sometimes. He squawked a little bit as best as he could, chuffing into the air, to which she smacked him in the chest and then moved his foot again. He was too shocked to move at this point, she figured since she was a little limp right now, and so she took the time to move his foot around and placed it where she thought it would give him the best stability. He looked shocked still but tested the new area and seemed pleased for a moment or two. There, that was better, and she tossed him a fish for letting her move him. She was sure they were almost done and could move on to the fun stuff next.
Jack moved to his other foot and started moving it. He snapped at her a little bit but the look she gave him calmed him down a bit. Oh woe is him and all that, she was trying to get him to behave himself! She snorted at herself for thinking that and shook her head, she didn't know what to do about things but that was fine. She pushed her hair back and then kept moving his foot around, this time not giving him any food or anything to see how that went, and it seemed to go okay for her so far. Jack just hoped he would behave himself soon enough or else she might have to sell him, and she was getting attached to the asshole already. He glared at her a little but let her move him, finally used to the work she was putting in and realizing it might help him out in the future.
Jack stood up and stretched out, her legs were starting to hurt a little, as well as her back, and then she moved around to his back and started to move around his tail. It was a little strange to do that, but that was alright she figured with a little chuckle. She didn't know what else she could be doing at the moment and that was fine. This was it though, once she was done here she could really start to work on some better things to do for awhile she figured with a smile and a nod. Mount training was among some of her favorite training, and she didn't know what else to do about things as it was. Jack finished moving his tail around with little complaints from the Wiurn and then gave him a pat on the neck and a fish, signifying they were all finished with that.
Hmm, next up, mount training it seemed. Jack yawned a little and stretched out before she shook her head to get the cobwebs out and eyed the Wiurn for a moment. He was going to be difficult, she knew that much, but she didn't know what else to do at the moment. Ah well, that was what they were going to do and it would be fine. Jack picked up the saddle she had brought with her and gently set it on the Wiurn's back after a stern instruction to stay where he was. Of course he shook it off with an angry hiss at her, snapping his jaws and getting a smack on the nose for it. She glared back at him and finally won the stare off when he glanced to the side. Ah well, at least he'd left it for a moment or two before shaking it off, but that was still frustrating.
Jack eyed the Wiurn a little bit and then shook her head as she lifted up the saddle. She'd not ridden a Wiurn before, and now the saddle was already scuffed, which bothered her for some reason. Giving him the eye, she put the saddle on his back again and quickly gave him a fish to show him that was what he needed to do. As much as he enjoyed the fish, he still shook the saddle off of himself and stomped one of his back feet in the sand, sinking down a little bit as time went by. He shuffled side to side for a moment and then called to the woman a bit, wondering when he would be getting new fish. Jack sighed a little and shook her head again as she picked up the saddle and looked at him. Things wouldn't be going too well as time went on, but at least it would be something.
Given was very set in his ways already, even though he really wasn't all that old. She sighed a little and then settled the saddle on his back again, instantly giving him a fish before he could shake it off. It had been a big fish, which meant he would take a moment longer to eat it, which meant a little while longer to leave the saddle on at this point. Jack pushed her hair back and then frowned when he finally shook it off, but that was alright, things would be fine from now on. He'd left the saddle on for longer than he had beforehand, which was awesome. Maybe that was the way to go before she ended up cinching it under his belly a little bit. They were different than Equillion saddles, she had to remember that much, and she knew it would only be a matter of time before he was an excellent mount, however.
As she thought about it, Given sniffed at the saddle a little bit. It really wasn't that bad, he just wasn't used to it yet and that was the problem. He was willing to give it a shot though... At least he supposed. Jack put the saddle back on him and instantly gave him a large fish from her pouch, then smiled as he left it on for a bit before he finally shifted around enough to where it came off. Still, that was a decent success for the stubborn Wiurn, some part of him must like the feel of the supple leather, she figured. Jack pushed her hair back and wondered what she was going to do with him at this point and wondered what she was going to do to get this done. Of course she needed to secure it to him to see if things would go well, and that was probably the plan at this point.

Nov 13, 2023 15:23:13 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: The jewelry on tail or at the head definitely tends to be their most recognizable feature for a Mosca, and sadly their pharaoh chin piece as well. XD
Nov 13, 2023 15:21:07 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Your peanut costume is hilarious and adorable too!
Nov 13, 2023 15:14:29 GMT -6

Twilight-Claw: It still looks good on Synkka. She is a shaman Mosca I'm guessing? Its mostly the tail that makes me think of it.
Nov 13, 2023 15:00:42 GMT -6
Zenjesi: I definitely like Spectral's the most too! I sort of cheated by drawing Synkka with a cloak because I do not know how to draw feathered wings, haha ^^'
