Just seeing the video that was posted of someone making a hash at catching a mini has reminded me to post this.....my friend recently got a loan of a mini for the summer for company for her mare from a neighbour but wanted to catch her the other day to worm her and its proving impossible!
When we did have a hold of her before she was put in the field she was fine. We phoned the neighbour to see how the heck he was able to catch her but he had her in a small garden so he could get her straight away, never had any problems.. but she's out in about 3acres now... any tips on geting near her?
Wev tryed loads of treats..sitting on the ground at her level for an hr or 2 at a time but she'll grab the treat and run and we'v tryed leading the other horse out so she'll follow but she's so smart.. knows exactly what wur up to lol anyone know how we can catch the we bugger?? ... extra info.. she's 10yr old, has been handled and ridden since she was 3, and had just come out of a heat before she went in with my friends mare..just incase that helps..
Any advise greatly appreciated!
