Female vs. Male?
So, this is basically just copied right from my journal..But I'd like opinions on it, because I really have no idea why she'd do this.
Soo..I found something out today about Alahna and people..I've been wondering what her issue is about someone coming up to her in her stall, but couldn't find any type of explanation..Well, BO's boyfriend is here for the week and had me realize (it didn't even click until he actually explained and didn't just show me) that it's only females she pins her ears at and occasionally bares teeth..She perked her ears up for him and as soon as I took a step toward her they were pinned flat against her head again. So I think tomorrow I'll be going to the barn and sitting/standing outside her stall for a few hours to see if that'll change anything.I've never done anything but take her out and put her back in a stall, but obviously there's something about her being in a stall and a female walking up. Come to think of it, at the last barn she'd perk her ears up at Charles and then pin them at me, even when I was bringing food.It's only when she's stalled though. Not when she's tied, standing, turned out, etc.
So..any ideas, experiences, etc?
I'm pretty sure the guy's wife I bought her from use to feed her and their other horses, and she was apparently terrified of her..I honestly believe something happened to her while she was stalled at one point though, be it from when she was at the track or her other owners up to me.
