ST just did this yesterday..and took the whole **** herd with her (not sure how since she's 6/7 on the totem...BUT, I managed to go after her (in painful muck boots) and catch her. I stood her in the cross ties since she wasted all my riding time while I helped with bedding for the pigs and did ground work with her for 10 minutes before I threw her back out.
We did lots of moving with me and backing with just a lead around her neck in the run in. She could have taken off, but she knew better that after I took the halter off, it didn't mean I was done with her.
You didn't mess up too bad, so don't be hard on yourself. I accidently pushed her away yesterday, so while I was cussing up a storm and telling them I was going to break their legs when I found them, it wasn't any of their faults, it was mine. Sure I was pissed, but more so at myself than at any of them (except that new mare..the little s**t). I screwed myself over and I'll take the blame, just had to fix it a bit more than if I hadn't accidently pushed her.
