    I chuckled when I read this not because I think your wrong, just because my mare is so hot (NOT) that I could probably sling her over my back and move down the trail faster than she does.

    Paint It a Freckle Paint

    Of course those lines may be further back on her than they are on your gelding.

    She's a wonderful mare though and is my "anyone can ride horse" and those don't come along very often so she's a keeper.

    Still trying to figure her out

    When she is on a lead line -- she is well behaved .. unless there is food around

    Off of the lead line --- it is anyones guess --- I have been kicked at more than once -- mostly food related stuff --- like alfalfa treat and beer

    ... no one gets my beer

    Does she get corrected when she kicks out at you? Over the years I've taken in a few horses that were food deprived and wanted to show a little aggression during mealtime at first. I've been known to throw an empty bucket or feed can at them or whack 'em with the plastic pooper scooper, whatever is in my hand at the moment, if they even thought about kicking me. Scares them more than it hurts them but it still gets the message across. Most times it took once a few of the more stubborn ones it took another time or two. I always aim for the leg they're aiming at me.

    How does your horse handle on the ground, OP?

    I don't see anything wrong with these bloodlines. They are nice, and sent off for a foundation before you get on her would probably make you a nice little riding horse.

    yes -- I chase the crap out of her immediately --- if I have a stick or a whip in hand I waave it like a mad man and try like hell to make contact -- but she is a lot faster than I am and I rarely make contact

    She is definitely not food deprived -- she is fatty mc-fat-fat

    Lol -- I have also thrown the feed bucket at her

    So far she has kicked at me 3 times --- twice were food related, and once was beer related (i think she likes the yeasty/malty smell)

    she is getting better -- she acts up when we get near the fence/gate to the neighbors pasture -- finally got a chance to pick her feet -- I figure I will get a lot more handling on her over the next 6 months

    I would like to send her off for a month to get a foundation -- my riding instructor recommnds a guy near me for $700 ... but apparently he is real good and works them 3-4 hours daily for the month

    I would really like to do this -- but she is only 22 months right now -- and I don't have $700 just laying around at the moment -- might try to send her in August
