We just got a new mare and she does not like to be touch!!! She has no respect but is very "tame" and not sensitive at all!! I can crack a whip and she could care less. Doesn't even look at me. She is also not very smart! Poor girl! She gets lost in our 4 acres of woods that is in the middle of our pasture and can't find her way out. Serious!!!! And there are other signs of course. Anyway how can I get her to connect with me? I have NEVER met a horse that did not like to be petted yet she has been out to pasture for at least 2 years. She is 3 1/2. Any suggestions?
