It seems once we fix one thing with Abby another proplem comes up. :roll:
I have been having this proplem since we got her but recently it has gotten worse.
Each time I go to pick out her hooves, she would rub her face on my back, if Mum is holding her head, she would move her leg foward making me loose grip, and if I have a strong grip she will walk foward on three legs! Its quite scary when she walks foward while your holding her hoof, and of course I let go. She has also started actually falling down onto her knee's, and she also leans.
I'm sick of it being a challange to do a everyday chore like picking out the hooves. Do you think this is a Behaviour issue [just being a brat], she is doing it out of pain or do you think she just wasnt trained to stand there for her hooves to be cleaned out?
I talk to her alot when I'm cleaning them out. I tell her to pick them up, then if she stands still and let me do it she gets 'Good girl' and a rub on the head. If she moves it around she gets 'Stand Up'.
I almost forgot...she is 5 years old, recently broken undersaddle, not sure how long she has been working on ground for. If there is anything else you would like to know just ask!
