So I just bought my mare Mango on Saturday. When I first went and test rode her, she was very antsy and nervous. She was the same way Sunday when I picked her up. She was pushy and anxious up until the time we got her on the trailer. Well as soon as we unloaded her at my barn she backed off nicely, trotted a couple of circles around me, then just calmed down. She walked around calmly, didn't spook, acting as if she's been there before. She called to the other horses a few times but other then that, completely calm. Anyway, she's been super calm ever since we've gotten her home. She had the farrier out today and the BO sent me a picture of her standing quietly with the farrier working on her, she wasn't even tied up, and she was standing quietly. Has anyone had this happen before?
Everyone has been shocked by the difference in her. I'm not complaining, just curious what could cause such a drastic change.
