Well, every day this week, I have been going to the horse ranch near me to visit the horses...and well, today was different...
I went there at about 3:45pm my time, but no one was there and the barn door was closed, so I waited patiently for about an hour for one of the ladies to show up. I thought it was fine, because they told me I could see the horses whenever I wanted, as long as I'm careful and don't walk into the pens, which is obvious. So I walked into the stalls area and only Hope and Smudge were around, so I pet them for a few minutes, maybe only 15 mins. Then I left. Well, I got a phone call later on at around 8:50pm, and it was the lady that was there today.
She told me that I'm apparently not allowed to go passed the front gate area anymore unless one of them are there, because I caused too much with the horses, and she commented on how much I "cuddled" the horses I spent just a few moments with. This has been bugging the hell out of me since. I am on the brink of just bursting into tears, this isn't what I wanted at all. I thought It was fine. Apparently Hope is sick, and I gave her too much attention, I had no idea she was under any pain or illness today, I only heard that she had a bit of a leg problem. So, I won't bother going everyday anymore, since she shot my eagerness to see the horses, and confidence down to a very low point, that I even considered just saying forget it, with the ranch thing this summer...
I hate being told things like this, it eats me up inside and makes me feel awkward when I do go there to see the animals, plus it makes me look like a fool.
I have no one to talk to about this, since I feel downright embarrassed, and question whether or not to continue to see the horses after this. I need someone's help right away.
Did I do something wrong? Please help me, or try comforting me in some way, I don't feel well at all now.
Thanks for looking.
