I have a yearling im having a hard time excepting fly spray, it seems to be the mist touching her that bothers her because i can spray the ground aay from her and it dont bother her, but as soon as she sees it shes goes crazy, i rescue horses and usually train them myself, and have never had a problem with other horses, though she did come to me pretty roughed up, was scared to death of people and would strike and kick when you would touch her legs, she still doesnt like her mouth touched from where someone hit her, but im slowly getting her to except it, i believe in taking it slow and waiting for the horses before moving to something new. she was abused and had her hooves tied up for trimming.
So far she does the following;
Picked up all 4 feet
will let me walk up to her in the pasture and put a halter on her
i've desensitzed her to grocery bags, and ropes.
always you to handle her ears and you can touch her everywhere.
She stands quietly for you to pick up her hooves and grooming.
But im stumped on the fly spray, i've tried every way i can think of, so i didnt know if someone on here would have a different way to help her get over her fear, she likes to be sprayed with the hose, i've tried walking away from her and spraying, it dont bother her as bad but as soon as the mist touched her body she rears and takes off. Help would be appreciated.
Also if anyone knows any information about her, her reg. name is CP Cash It Electra.
