Herd Bound - Dad is fed up...
Aargh. Why does my favourite horse in years have to come complete with the worst herd bound behaviour i've ever dealt with.
We have the horses paddock divided in two with hot tape because there is just too much grass. Everytime we take another horse out now, Latte either ducks under the tape or runs through it, breaking it, either letting the other horses out or stirring them up. Bundy saw her duck under the tape and almost tried himself (15.2h compared to 13.3h - Not gonna work!) which he has never even thought off before.
Dad has pretty much said I have to send her back to her owner or lock her in the yards by herself. Fantastic. Being in the yard will mean buying hay and also buying hard feed (They don't get fed at the moment, just a mineral lick) and will also mean not as much excersize (Or more actually, as she will run herself ragged).
Gah, this whole thing just sucks. No one except me even likes this horse and aren't willing to give her any consideration really. My dad thinks she is a neurotic idiot and I don't doubt wishes I never took her on.
I guess this is just a rant, really.
