Okay, so I was over to the barn today and I was looking forward to a nice ride with Indie and then I was planning on giving her a bath afterwards.
The first bit started out fine, she met me halfway in the pasture and all was good.. up until I messed up the hind right leg polo wrap, so I took it off to re-wrap it.
Keep in mind that the hind right has the worst case of thrush (all feet are currently being treated under the farrier's recommendation). She continued to lift up her leg each time I went near it, almost trying to kick me. I figured I'd see if I could walk her out of her "stubborn-ness" but it didn't work, so I had a sneaking suspicion that her foot might be bothering her. Instead of trying again (after the tenth or so attempt), I went to go give her a bath.. but nope, she kept kicking up her hind leg when I tried spraying them. She's never done this as I hose her off after every ride.
I know the farrier said that the solution (I'm trying to remember what the product is called.. I want to say Copper Care but I forget) has a bit of a wang so she might grow to dislike it so maybe that could be it too.
Either way, I brought her back into the barn to put the stuff in the crevices of her hooves where the farrier showed me to put it. While I was holding her feet, she'd often try putting them back down. It wasn't too bad with the front but she wasn't happy about me putting it in the right hoof.
I can't imagine it's a respect issue or anything because she seems to be respecting me quite well, and I recently read that whether or not your horse comes to you in the pasture also has a role played in respect. I think it's the fact of the thrush and maybe the product making her feet a little more sore/sensitive, but I really want other opinions. Any other questions, feel free to ask as well if that helps you with a suggestion.
