I just bought a mare on Saturday rode fine, picks up all four feet, good ground manners....on her property with her buddy. She had a little issue getting on the trailer but nothing that couldn't be worked on. She is super sweet loves to be brushed on and lunges great too. We put her in her stall next to our other two to help adjust before turning them out together. Everything fine. Then on Sunday we went to ride our other two and left the new one there, after lunging her for abt 30 min, to still just get settled. She went CRAZY!!! Crazy is actually an understatement!!
Rearing up breaking spindles, slamming her body into the sides of the walls, facing her butt right and the door and cowkicking as hard as she could. I thought she was going to kill herself she did knock her head pretty hard and slowed down for a min, and long enough for me to go in and calm her down. As long as I was in there with her she was fine, the moment I walked out crazy again. Teaching a horse to be okay with something is one thing but she is absolutely belligerent to the point of seriously hurting someone.
So immediatley I thought she's toooo much, but I thought this is probably what everyone has done is beat this poor girl and trade her again and again. So I'm thinking two weeks of work and building trust and getting her adjusted....BUT then I went to ride my old horse to calm my nerves leaving one in the barn so the new one would be ok, and the new one almost came over her door like a pitbull, trying to take a chunk out of my mare
!!!!!!!!! What do I do?????? I can't keep my horses up just to keep her calm and I don't wanna turn her out with my sweet mare because she'll prob kill her.....our other mare rules the roost so I thought abt turning her and the new one out together so my old boss can out her in her place, I just don't wanna risk getting either of them hurt. And what abt when we take only the two and not the new one I'm positive she would run right through the fence
She def has been beat on before it seems she's terrified, her whole body was shaking. I feel so bad for her but have no clue what to do
