New Arabian Mare

Well, after a couple of frustrating months of trying to figure out a way to save an Arab mare at a barn I train at, I finally was able to do it. She is a 4 year old bay Arabian mare. She had some rough handling at some point in the last couple of years, and so has been termed dangerous since she hurt someone trying to handle her. The owner/breeder was going to put her down if we couldn't find her a home, so me, the woman who's horse I train, and a friend of hers all went in together on this, and now own the horse. She is a very nice very well bred mare, and wants to be with people, but is very scared of what they will do to her. In the next few days I will get some pictures of her, so that I can post them, and later do a before and after kind of thing to see how far she's come. I went into her stall today, and she actually did pretty good. Still won't let us touch her or come too close to her, but she is at least attempting to take carrots out of our hands, as long as she doesn't actually touch our hands. She is a very dramatic horse, and I can't wait to see what she does once we can really start working her. I am just very glad that we were able to keep her from being euthanized because of someone else's mistakes.

I'm anxious to see how you progress with the mare, Holly.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
