Hello everybody! I haven't posted for a long time, but I have been learning a lot by reading you guys! I have an 8 year old mare, Yapa, who has been mine for a year now. She has always been cranky, specially on the ground. But we have certainly come a long way. Or at least we had come a long way.... Until the School where she is boarded moved into a new place a week ago. She is really nervous now and crankier than ever! I cannot come close to her on the ground to groom her without her pinning her ears and giving me the evil eye and threatening to bite me!!! When I ride her, she is definitely more edgy and nervous and aware of her surroundings. She tends to speed up more than she used to too. I guess it is possible for her to have suffered some kind of stress due to the change of place, even though she moved with all her herd. What do you think? Does this sound possible? Have you been through something similar? Anything I could do to ease the way through this? Thanks!!!!!
