If I took over half way horse would go nuts, but if a man came back to do it it would be fine. And I am the one that rode and cared for horses for years
Yep. I have witnessed the same thing. To suggest horses are too dumb to know the difference of gender is definitely wrong. They also know people, even if they haven't seen them for years.
Also, I disagree with appyt... don't sell her or give her back just yet, get help from an experienced horse person and you'll be fine. It's how we learn! Don't tie her to anything that isn't stationary though, that is true. And learn how to tie a horse properly, if you haven't already, because you need to tie them so that if something went really wrong you could quickly get them untied...
That's how I tie my horse... the first one.. second one is hard lol!!
