My mare has always been a great loader. Except for yesterday. My other horse was screaming for her, and she just decided she wasn't going in. I had to lunge her for 30 minutes before she decided to load! She was being a total brat, reared up and kicked a dent in the trailer door!
I've loaded her at least 10 times since yesterday, and she has hopped right in each time. This morning I put her on the lunge line and pointed at the trailer, and she trotted right in.
So was yesterday just a "bad day" and nothing I should be concerned about? It seemed like she was just in a mood yesterday. When I took her out the gate, she had a "sour" look on her face, which is totally unlike her. She is usually easy going, and is normally the most non-moody mare I have ever met. That sort of behavior is really out of character for her!
I suppose she could be seasonal, but she never shows when she is in season...
Any ideas? Thoughts?
