"Oh, She's Real Good........Except for _____" Please Share Your Stories!
Since starting work with this spoiled horse....it seems I've been hearing this a LOT.
"Oh, she's a real good horse...except when it's time for the farrier. Then it takes two people to hold her - plus we use the twitch."
"Oh, she's real good horse....except she doesn't like A, B, or C."
"Oh, she's a real good horse...except she's been spoiled some."
"Oh, D is real good with that horse...if she won't come in - D just puts the treats in a bucket and eventually she'll come around."
"Oh, K is real good riding her...except she can't always get the horse to do what she wants."
Is it just me - or does it sound like these folks don't quite get the definition of "real good horse" ?
Please share some of the "real good....except" stories you've heard...
HAHA this was me about a young pony we are breaking in, Until I spooked him and he threw me, Now ive lost confidence and to be honest I find my self defending him in this way all the time. And as the disrespect is esculating im just moving on from "he was going perfect until i spooked him and now ive frightented him" to " he did everything perfectly for the girl who boke him, hes such a sweetie really " in fact I think hes TESTING me now big time since recently hes refused to lead forward, refused to enter stable and refused to walk on when being ridden half was through working! See a pattern.
At least im honest, and I know im doing it.
He is sweet though and once we work through these issues hes gonna make a super fab pony for the neices!!
I looked at a beautiful QH for sale that was real good.....but then revealed it had the dreaded navicular problem on one foot. Does that count?
Everyone feel free to take the p*!$ out of that post, I know thats what the thread is for!!! :)
Im dopey and I know it!
Oh yeah, he's real good.....except for a slight navicular problem - but, ya know, otherwise....REAL GOOD.
Oh she's a fantastic mare.. but she does buck people off
Oh she's such a great trail horse, but she tries to kick the ^*$% out of other horses
Or my horse: Oh he's a great boy, but he has tried to kill the vet in the past LOL!
Oh he's real good exept for he is so herd bound that he tries to bolt and rear
haha my horse is a brat
I have one that call my "Little Girl with the Curl in the Middle of her Forehead", when she's good she's very very good and when she's bad she's horrid. Though for the most part she's ok, but if she gets her fly mask off and gets sunburnt, you can't touch her til it heals. ........OOOOY!
