I've recently bought 25 stall mats to cover her entire stall with run and that being said she's now in a stall with run to avoid pasture burn, excessive mud, etc. I've also got her covered nose to tail with a fly blanket and plan to continue blanketing throughout the fall and winter. I'm toying with the idea of vet wrapping her legs loosely to prevent rubbing but, I've yet to as I'm unsure of the effectiveness of this anyways? Input? She's an absolute doll to trailer you just lead her up to it she stands there gnawing and slobbering on the floor for a minute then steps right in to eat from the haynet... My biggest issue with her which has been yet to be broken since I got her is she doesn't respect my space and despite my efforts she also thinks that she can use her might against me to get to grass, feed, etc... very counter productive... It seems to me that she's got the draft mentality because she also doesn't respect fences unless theyre posted into the ground... She was turned out with other horses once and tore down the fence dragging it with her so since then she's been in a stall with run and I turn her out daily. I've had other horses (drafts) who don't respect space like this because they seem to know they're big but I've yet to have one that is so oblivious to aids when food is there. I'm going to see what other people do about this issue and hopefully I'll find something that can help.
