So, we picked up this lovely mare at an auction sale last weekend:
And, for fear of picking something up at the auction barn, we seperated her and the other mare we bought from the other horses in a horse pasture on the other side of the yard.
When we got her, she lead like a dream and the day after, I could catch he no problem, then we let them out into the field.
Well. I have 0 time for much of anything extra right now, so only got around to playing with her twice since we got them. My mother may have done more...
Anyways. I went out this afternoon and wanted to catch her a do some stuff on the ground with her. And do you think I could get even a hand on her neck? No way.
I tried every trick in the book. Sitting down, turning your back, oats... the list goes on. No luck. So before we run her to the corrals and get a rope on her, any other ideas?
P.s. don't get mean about when I say "get a rope on her". We've handled several horses that have never been touched before and roped them to get a halter on.
