I can't wait to get her neck reigned and muscled up, then the real fun begins with western games, 101. I'm hoping she's as fast around the barrels as she is to the feed buckets, haha! Posted via Mobile Device
I picked up a 2 year old Paint filly last year who'd been badly spoiled and basically allowed to get away with murder - I was told she was green broke when she clearly had no idea what I wanted, I was told she was docile and she almost kicked my head in a couple times when I dropped my guard. She was just pushy, bossy, aggressive and not afraid to use her teeth or hooves.
I took up a firm but gentle hand with her, and now at 3 and 1/2 she's one of the sweetest, most docile and loving horses I've ever had the pleasure to work with! There were times I swear she was a lost cause and was just ready to ship the stubborn mule, and I'm very glad I stuck it out!
Jeebus, I'm glad Fancy isn't that bad! I can deal with breaking horses, but I can't stand kickers and biters. I hate watching my back with a horse all the time, even on the ground. Posted via Mobile Device
