Today I just about got ran over at the gate by my Moms horse. Yup, great end to the day. He never crowds me at the gate, but he saw the other horses in the other pasture running into their stalls to be fed, and when I opened the gate slightly he pushed through me, nearly running me over. Obviously he missed the memo that it was not his turn to feed.
At my barn, when they feed they open the gates and let the horses run into their stalls. I'm not a huge fan of this method, but I'm in no position to complain either. This is the first time I've ever put my horse away at feeding time, and the first time my Moms horse has ever ran out of the pasture, or even been the least bit disrespectful to me at the gate. I realize it's a pain for them to have to halter and lead my horses into their stalls, but would it be worth asking my barn owner to do? Would it help? Any recommendations? I don't wanna be the whiny person at my barn, I would much rather be whiny here where nobody knows who I am :P
