Broodmare to Ridable horse?
Okay, Bluegrass is an 11 year old broodmare that I recently rescued last August. I'm not sure if I want to breed her again this year (she is in foal for 2014 and it will be her 8th foal). Nothing physically seems to be wrong with her.
But...she is SUPPPPPER shy. When I was able to spend time with her everyday and give her treats (she doesn't want you to come close unless you have food, then she'll let you start to touch her) she was starting to be able to be touched. I was thinking about training her and making her another riding horse...what are your thoughts? I don't want to leave her be (Not breed her or train her) because she is beautiful and has a lot of spirit and it would be a shame (and I don't want to sell her, I am her 4th home and I don't like rehoming horses unless I absolutely ABSOLUTLEY have to)
