My mare gets upset when I am not right there with her. As I am the barn manager, I spend the morning feeding the horses, and filling and cleaning water buckets, and she throws a hissy fit the entire time she can see me if I'm not paying attention to her. And all heck breaks loose if I leave her in the turn out, and "disappear". I turned her out today while I was doing the waters, and she ran around the arena neighing in the general direction I had gone, or where ever she had a visual of me, until I came back to get her out. I then turned her out in the arena so she could actually run, (she was in the round pen first), and she ran around the arena bucking when I went to go fill up another bucket. And then of course when I went into the arena with her, she just wanted to be on top of me so I couldn't leave her again. I feel bad on the one hand, but on the other, its a bit annoying to have her so concerned when I'm not right there, as I don't want her doing something stupid and hurting herself. I truly do hate the sad faces that guilt us into more attention, loves, treats, ect. They can look so pitiful when they want to.
