If you have read my posts before you will have heard that I have many horses (rescues and my own) but my main, and number one baby is Flo (my brown 6yr old 16hh wb x tb mare).
When I bought her 4yrs ago she was not marey at all....we had absolutely no problems with her at all and she came on leaps and bounds untill she was out competeing well!
Slowly over the last year she has become a little over sensitive, shall we call it?!? She started aguing over who was the boss and questioning absolutely everything I asked of her! For e.g. Stopping when I was leading her and refusing to move...then going on without any change in her or me! I quickly put this down to her getting stronger and basically being a 5year old! Hehe
Unfortunately this has got worse that EVER this year, so I am getting to the point where im thinking of giving up on her! She runs off with me in the menage with her head in the air and tail! She is constantly chatting to any gelding within a mile radious and is the most marey mare I know!!! She even kicked me which is unheard of! She bucks when pieces of the menage flick up at her back legs! And she constantly refuses to load into either trailer or lorry...just because she can! She doesnt sweat up or get hot, she just stands there like "no I don't want to actually?!"
Somebody mentioned putting her in foal to ballance her hormones but at the minute I have had enough! Its worse now I think due to her moving onto a yard where she is one of only two mares on a yard of over 20horses, but she is far too big for her boots right now....
PLEASE HELP ME GET MY LOVELY GIRLY BACK! Any suggestions welcome! (Tried the hormone balancer NAF 5*oestress last year with very little effect!)
