So I got to the barn last night to get told my the barn owner that my horse is causing all sorts of problems.
1. Since she (horse) doesn't like to get haltered, the other horses see this and no longer want to get haltered either.
2. She got put in a different pasture next to a gelding who lost his studliness late in life (10 yrs) and only a month ago. Mr. Studly decided to run through the fence because she was standing there.
3. The lady I'm technically leasing her from doesn't think she's getting over her issues fast enough, and if everything isn't better in a month she's taking the horse back. BO & owner want to leave a lead & chain on her in the pasture & let her figure out on her own how to respect a halter and lead rope (once the halter is on, there is no lack of respect from her, it's just getting it on that has proven to be a challange.)
I'm pretty much ready to wash my hands of the whole thing, if it's not done their way it's not being done right. Just waiting for the call from the horses owner, and back she goes! I'm sick of hearing how just because I'm not riding her right now and doing only ground work, that means that she's not getting worked and is just sitting. Almost tempted to email her right now, if I could just find her email...
