It seems to me that you have some classic hancock symptoms there
Mind you - at one time I owned a mare and my dog was male
I am much happier now that I ride a gelding and the dog is a bitch
The old cob mare was fantastic - could trot down the road for mile after mile but blimey did she get moody when in season
The gelding, on the other hand, is the same every time I climb aboard
And the bitch does not keep stopping to annoint the pathways.
I also keep my horse in work and outside all year Mack n me – click here to go large « If you like horses
Last year was his first winter rugged up
Now that he is pushing twenty I guess he deserves some comforts
