My hubby and the horses..hmmmmm

So this morning I switched the horses in the other pasture and the hubby helped me. Scooter had a halter on so I had him walk him , and I just threw a lead rope around Cash and walked him. Everything went fine ... Now I went to town and when I came back I seen the hubby decided to take them back to the other pasture...by himself....Ok , just so ya'll know this is his first time around horses and I have had them little over a month manybe ....He said he took Scooter first and that Scoot was pulling on him , getting close to him and yeah...while he is doing this Cash is going frantic in the pasture , running back and forth and the hubby said he was worried he was going to try and jump the fence ...He said he got Cash (after putting a halter on him ) and that Cash did the same thing , walking a little ahead of him and pulling on him...Now they don't do this to me . When I am leading them around they walk either right with me , or a little behind and there is slack in the lead rope and as soon as I stop they stop without me having to tell them or pull back. I told my hubby that they were showing him who was boss and he was like ya right they would have done that to you to ! I bet him 20 bucks they wouldn't , so tomorrow I will be proving a point . He just doesn't understand , I think it's kinda funny but than again he doesn't realize he could get hurt if he keeps on letting them walk all over him ! I told him the next time they do it , start backing Scooter up and with Cash (he has a problem with backing up ) I told him to start spinning him around . Maybe he should just leave them be lol

I dunno I am just getting back to this myself lol ....I just wonder if they knew he didn't know what he was doing , or if they are just used to me messing with him . This is the first time he has done anything like that, now he will pet them and feed them treats every once in a while but it's all me when it comes to grooming , bathing , walking and stuff like that . I am thinking that Cash has a little anxiety when Scooter is not with him....I had an idea that maybe I should seperate them from time to time , because I don't want him acting up on me when Scooter isnt coming .

Just the basics of feeding rugging moving to start with. That way if something happens to you. Stuck in traffic, sick etc you can get hubby to whip out and do what's needed.

We all know you'll come out on top, but stroke the male ego a little bit so he won't toss a fit if you need him to do something in the future.
