I got a new addition, a completely untrained 2 yo haflinger filly that is shy of 13hh. She is cute and all, but, she climbs the pipe rail fencing. What the H, over? When she sees me she runs over to the fence line and climbs the rails w her front feet, much like a dog would, until she is "standing" up. Its insane. I am terrified she will hurt herself. I feel like I have to "get in" the pen as fast as I can to prevent her from climbing. And I am so worried about what she will do when I take my mare on the trail. WAH!
In addition to that, she has bamboozed her way to number one position w my mare, she is so obsessed w food to the point it amazes me, and she doesn't watch where she is putting her feet (when on the ground )!
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, she is as sweet and calm as the day is long, and is very willing to learn. Its just the "rail climbing" thing that blows my mind and scares me to death - not to mention has "cut into" my feeling of "freedom" to just saddle up and go!
