    No it's an Arab mare, I don't know just how old she is but she's probably not even 12. She's is scared of everything. My RI won't even go into her stall because the one time she did to retrieve her halter this mare attacked her. You can't take her out of her stall. You can't even go near her stall. I've met some scared horses before, but not one has topped this. The girl who was working with her before, worked with her for about a year on trust, but it appears to have had no effect.

    I don't think she's scared, actually. Not normal behavior, even for a scared equine. I suspect she's got some sort of physical issue going on...might be migraines, a bad food allergy...something along those lines. Her behavior is her attempt to get somebody to listen.

    Course, I've never met the mare so I could be completely wrong, but that's what my experience and instinct are telling me, and those are never wrong.

    If you can't get her some help then the humane thing to do is to put her down. She may not be hopeless but you can only do what you can do. You should probably get a vet to examine her to see if there is something wrong with her physically then get her out of the stall and see if you can find someone to get her right or put her down.
