Backing vs. walking out?
I just purchased a 2H slant load trailer. I have loaded and unloaded all my horses in and they fit well. One mare, the largest at 16.2HH, doesn't seem to want to back out. She throws her head around and walks out forward. I wanted to know if it's okay if she walks forward out of the trailer? I am used to hauling a straight load and don't know if walking forward is a bad thing or not? I am not afraid to work with her and make her back out. She's more comfortable walking forward, and I'll let her, provided it's okay. All of the other mares will back out fine, just not Lexi!
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.
