Stan I know the problem with Stella, it's obvious....she's a mare
! Sassy does the same to me when she feels that I am not giving her the attention she wants NAOW!
For example, the other day she was outside, I went to her paddock to say hello, she trotted over to me, gave a buck of excitement to see me and expected the hand maiden i.e me
to immediatly put her inside her warm stall. I walked away to get her stuff and put my stuff in my locker, she got mad, took off squealing and bucking as I was walking away.
I walked back to the paddock about 5 minutes later, she TOTALLY ignored me and had her back to me. I called her, I clucked at her, I smooched at her, I waited and ignored her.......no dice. So I did what any normal human being would do, I bribed her =D All it took was "Hey sassy, want a carrot baby?" she came over like she hadn't just been ignoring me lmao!
Mare's WILL give you thier all once you have earned the role of herd leader, the rocky road is actually getting the title
