Angry Filly Learned A Lesson- Running In Stall

So my 2yr old filly learned a lesson the hard way....

Today coming in from out in the paddock she decided to pull s**t with my boyfriend. She got to the doorway of the barn and planted her feet. Now our barn is small, just 2 stalls. Her stall is on the left, and the broodmares birthing stall in directly infront. Well he had a lead on her, and she did some facy footwork and bolted on him. Pulled the lead out of his hand, hit him with her hind end, and took off into the broodmares stall. He ended up with a few of his fingers scraped up pretty bad. One is missing skin from the tip of the finger back to the joint, and one of his nails is turning black

I don't stand for that. At all. Not in my barn! I sent him to the house and delt with her myself. I took her out and tried to walk her in, she trampled me too. I had enough! After a brief beating we started on the real lesson. We walked in and out of the barn over and over and over, with the shank over her nose. By the end she was walking in again. I will be the only one dealing with her for the next few days. I can't tollerate that. You can just get hurt too badly from something like that.

Sorry, had to vent.

I totally know where you're coming from. And I'm not going to be one of the people who try and bash you for saying, "after a brief beating," lol.

My girls just get stupid sometimes. Ricci's 17, and she knows better, so the slightest misbehavior gets a good deal of punishment. Gracie is a yearling who is still trying to throw her weight around, and there's been plenty of times when I had to give her quite a spanking to back off.

Don't feel bad, I wouldn't tolerate it either. I probably would have handled it the same way. There are some things that simply aren't ok, no ifs, ands, or buts. Hopefully she learns quick and you can start strolling in the barn with her on a loose lead. =]

Thanks. Glad you understand. I just can't tollerate it when I know she knows better. She used to stroll loose lead, but all the sudden she had to test her limits, with my boyfriend. That's part of the problem, she tries to push him around and test her limits with him... because she KNOWS she gets away with NOTHING with me!

My 2 year old gelding tests me too. I recently moved him and unfortunately no round pen here so I thought I would try the lunge line. First time he went really well then last weekend he charged at me twice. He did this in the round pen before but I had stopped him of it. Scared the crap outta me. Little turkey. Well this weekend we are going back in and I wont take no guff from him. (He also had 8 weeks off due to hernia surgery so he's a little loco at the moment).

Good for you not putting up with that kind of junk. Don't feel bad about laying down the law, sometimes it just needs done. As far as the "brief beating"... I'm all for not abusing horses, but my horses better not abuse me. Some things just can't be put up with.

Haha my pet peeve is when horses push or test me, I have the paitence of a saint in the saddle, but on the ground I push right back those darn youngsters always have to cause some trouble ;)

"A brief beating" can be said in a kinder gentler way by simply stating you had a "come to Jesus" meeting with her.

I had a horse that did this to me once. I didn't have to "have a come to Jesus" meeting with the horse, what I did instead was BACK my horse into and out of the stall over and over. Settled him down pretty quickly.
