I have a yearling filly that I raised. She is halter broke, loads in the trailer, and can be handled with her feet, brushed, and etc. She can be a little hard to catch sometimes. I own her mother which is a very nice respectful mare.
I have spent some time doing ground work with this yearling filly, but not all the way through like I would one to. She has been been handled enough for a inexperienced horse person can lead, feed and handle her.
However I noticed the other day that while I was walking through the pasture, she would come running up behind me. As soon as I turned around she would re-direct herself and go off in another direction. She has done this to me a couple of times. Thinking she was going to do it again, I grabbed a whip to pop at her, but she did nothing to allow me to use it.
What does it mean when she comes running up behind me?
