Got some good progress today. In the first 20 minutes being with him, everytime he'd nip or pin his ears I'd back him up and make him move his feet. He stopped and didn't pin his ears or nip anymore. We'll work on it more tomorrow.
But, yeah I should quit...but I've gotten attached to the horses. But, when I was first hired and "interviewed" for the job. The big red flag that came up when I was talking to the guy is that he kept saying horses are very stupid animals and always need to have an eye on them.
But, I think I'll call a vet...maybe. It's not just me who he's suddenly aggressive with. He is becoming very aggressive with the other horse. The other horse was always the dominant horse between the two. Herbie would never fight back when he was put in his place. Now he is always going after the other horse. Always pinning his ears at him and biting and charging at him...it's wierd. Whenever the other horse is around Herbie will not eave him alone, like just his presence is extremely irritating to him.
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux
