LONG STORY - But disaster situation!
I was visiting a friend of a friends farm a while back, and it was a complete disaster. They owned a mare named Po and she had been sitting in her paddock for almost 2 years untouched. She was covered in dandruf and quite skinny, being out in the cold with no rug or shelter or substantial feed (hay).
I was at the farm to check her out as I will be taking her soon to fix her up. The horse next door (long story, didn't belong to the people that lived there but belonged to the womans grandfather, or something, broke his back and the grandfather refused to have it put down so he spent $thousands in treatment) broke into Po's paddock a few months back and became obsessive over her.
This horse was extremely protective and spooky. In order to catch Po the Mum of the family who owned her ran in with a whip waving it around and absolutely making this spooky horse go balistic, trying to chase it away.
I crawled under the fence and caught Po, while the woman was waving the crop around creating a very stressful situation. To make matters worse the only way to get Po out of the paddock was to go UNDER the fence - which was a bit of string. Before I knew it I was leading her under a string fence, thinking in the back of my head "this is so dangerous" while the Dad and kids held it up to allow enough room for her to go through. We took Po up to the house and the spooky horse was going balistic - abo****ely nuts. It galloped down into the valley and slipped in the mud onto its back. It was awful to see, and I was shocked to see everyone laughing.
The horse struggled to get back up in desperation to get back to its mate.
It was awful, I felt so sorry for these horses. I wish I could take both back home with me but I can only take Po - I'm not sure how the other horse will react to that, I hope he forgets though.
Anyway, bad training-ish experience!
