    my horse is backwards lol

    Just a random thread, my horse Legacy will continually walk away from me in the pasture if I go up and try to be friends and pet him or whatnot, he just sees me coming and turns and walks away, UNLESS I have a halter lol he sees the halter and he'll stand there and wait for me to walk up and put on lol. Now my other 2 horses will walk up to me for attention, or I can walk up to them and give them love, but if the see I have a halter they can't be bothered and become PITA's to catch ....
    So anyone else have a backwards horse? Ideally they would all come to me regardless of if I have a halter or not, but I guess I'd rather be able to catch them when I have a halter and need them then when I just want some horsey love

    We have a gelding who hates cuddling, but has a really good work attitude. So pretty, but if you try to hug him, watch out, because he might bop you with his head. He loves going out and riding, so he comes if you have a halter. haha

    Sounds sorta like my mare as well. She only tolerates so much cuddly touch, but is almost always ready for the halter. And oddly enough, she is my horse, we are bonded well, but she tolerates cuddling from my husband more than from me... go figure lol. He is better in that dept with horses than I, I think.

    My previous gelding had a peculiar quirk. The pasture was his home. Don't ride him in there and don't mess with him in there. Yet if I hollered "Coming out?" he'd come to the gate on the run. I could do whatever I wanted outside the pasture, just not inside. Every few months I'd use him to check his fence. Talk about a balky horse! Yet point him down the driveway and he was gung ho to go somewhere.

    YES!!!! My mare is JUST LIKE THIS! She HATES to work on our property... we fight and clash heads massively as she submits, but take her out and she is golden, aside from us both being greenies. We have converted a front area that was unsafe into an arena/pasture area, and the first few times we warmed them up there, she spazzed and fought me till we went out the property fence!
    Glad to know it isn't just my girl. :)
