As someone who has been afraid of horses her whole life, I now find myself with 2 mustangs adopted from the BLM.
My husband, however, was quite confident with getting them. Well 4 months later, it turns out I am the only one that can approach, and pet the 2 yr. Old, and the 4 yr. Old mare is still very skiddish.
I think our only chance is to hire a professional trainer in the spring, and get these girls on our side.
I've come to this forum for any advice I can gather, to make us better horse owners. They have a nice pasture, tons of hay and oats, and cows and goats to watch, but they just don't trust people.
I think the problem is, they were captured a year ago, and since then have only seen people to give them shots, or scare them into loading into a trailer.
