When my old girl had to retire at the age of 15 due to a deep flexor tendon injury, she was completely depressed. My younger mare stepped in as my main horse and my old girl was horrified! haha. She would mope around until I rode her and made her feel useful. She's now 17 and it's a bit better now but she still wants to be the center of attention over Uma.
To pass the time for her, I groom her all the time, give her extra treats, and make her feel like she's still my main girl. I ride her occasionally, but she has found a new passion for carrying around little ones. She LOVES the undivided attention she recieves from children and although she is a TB, she is the quietest animal on the planet. The kids love to dote over her and learn everything from picking up her hooves to how to post the trot. I have found that Ginisee is so much happier when she feels like she has a job!
