My husband was in the pasture today working on some gopher holes. Bella came over to see what he was doing and obviously wanted attention. He petted her a little. She walked away. Then Chris went to work on a different hole and Bella came over again and he petted her. She turned to go away and he said he felt something going on behind him, so he turned and she was spinning around with her butt to him, then was kind of bucking or kicking towards him. Okay, when he told me about this it really freaked me out. I was very upset.
I called my farrier/trainer and she said it sounded like she was trying to get him to play with her. She said it sounded like Bella was thinking "he's in my pasture and not playing with me." She also said that Bella is acurate enough that if she wanted to kick him she would have.
I have set the rule that I must be informed before he goes into the pasture again. I will then lock her in her paddock.
What do you all think?
Also: Has anyone had something like this happen? Is my horse nuts or normal?
