At the moment I'm thinking really hard about selling them, I feel so bad..I feel like I'm wrecking or spoiling my horses. I feel to inexpreinced care for two horses..I feel horrible. They both seem happy, they are fat (probably too fat ) and they both sort of behave.
It's just the other day, I was riding Abby up to the properties owners house to pay him and his wife came out. Abby was not standing still for me and kept getting closer and closer to the wife, I doubt Abby would have done anything but the husband gave me a dirty look. I was trying to get her to stand still but she wasn't listen to me . I felt really bad, like I'm just letting her get away with everything, but she does listen to me normally..just having a bad day I guess.
Everytime she sees the car coming up the drive way to her paddock, she whinnys out and trots up to the gate to meet me there..is this normal? Would this be bad behaviour? Now my gelding also has started doing this. Should I be worried about it?
It's hard not having someone telling me what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong, I wish I had some sort of instructor to help me a little..but they cost way too much and I don't own a float so its never going to happen.
I don't think I'm spoiling them to much, but everytime I get the farrier out he is always saying "There spoiled"..I don't get it. The only time Abby or Chester played up was on there back feet, you can't expected them to behave when its windy, the husband was mowing..very close to there paddock, gates were making noises and then the husband comes into the paddock and decides to chat to the farrier while he is trimming. Should I expect them to stand there nicely when they have 5 people standing around them on a windy day? I thought maybe that would be expecting too much..
Sorry for the venting but..just somedays I don't feel 'good enough' to care for them. I hate it..Does anyone else feel like this?
