    I don't know what to do with her, her skin issue has gone, she is loading well. But still avoids me Came home to night and she was in the jenny craig paddock close to the shed. She saw me arrive waited untill I had packed the truck made a sound and walked out into the main paddock. It was very obvious she was snubbing me. But I still like her. Time will tell. Anyone coming over this way has a horse to ride.

    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 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

    Took Kate and Bugs for a ride. Bugs was an absolute pain in the butt he was impatient, would not stand when asked, tried to refuse to go where I pointed him. He put in a couple of little bucks and lifted his front feet a couple of inches off the ground A right little s--- he was. But I made him do what I wanted. The total oppersite of the last two rides. Reminds me of when I was young full of energy and known to throw in the odd buck or two.

    So I have some urgent riding to do every night to get his head back to listening to me. I made him load tonight and that went well, all I had to do was lead him to the ramp and in he went locked him in the trailer for 30 minutes. No issues.

    Tomorrow night Ill ride him for 15 minutes in the paddock with the aim of spending time standing and doing very little then I tie him up for 2 or 3 hours. The beginning of learning patience. When he settles down again Ill give him a day on the farm and beach then Sunday ill tie him up all day.

    Stella was chucking a hissy fit when we came home from the ride. She started calling, running from padock to padock bucking acting like a hoon. Time she was included.

    A plus for Bugs he is learning the one rein stop and where his safe place is. That is a relief for me and him, it gives him time out.

    We will be getting some snow here, too, but will have a couple of nice days first. It's bright & sunny right now.. but only about 50 degrees.

    Stan-Did you ride Kate, or did your wife go also? Sounds like the trailer loading is going well. Hope Bugs settles down-Stella sounds jealous,hmm?

    With Grace-Do you have a show coming up soon? Or still more training to get ready?

    Hello to all,keep the home fires burning!

    Where's Mont cowboy? Miss your posts!

    I think that my husband has lost interest in riding. That is unfortunate.
