I have a 7 year old QH mare. She is a bit of a handful and truthfully I haven't worked on her as much as I should have. Between the hot weather and my work schedule it just didn't get done. One of her main problems is she was buddy sour for the donkey that I had been given. It got so she got really upset if he got out of her sight. Even if I all I did was tie her up to groom or fly spray she would get upset and not stand still. Worse case was breaking lead or halter. The few times I tried to ride her in the pasture she would prance and jig and turn trying to look for him. Either that or refuse to go forward. I rode her at a friends house and she was great.
Anyway my solution was to give the donkey away. I found a great home for him.
He left on Sunday. Has anyone else had success with getting rid of the buddy for a solution?
