I had a 3 year break from horses to complete a uni course, and believe me, I made some STUPID mistakes in those first few weeks, remembering how horses behave! The one that still makes me shudder is my geldings first day in his new paddock. He was by himself to settle, with two others in the paddock next to him so they could meet each other. Dinner time comes, and what do I do? Set up his feed bin RIGHT beside the fence! Other two horses didn't get anything, they are big fatties and don't get hand fed, so naturally they were SUPER jealous and upset that the new guy got food and they didn't. Mare tries to boss him away from the food, they have a bit of a scuff through the fence. I am about 20 metres away, come running, but not quick enough. My horse boots the mare through the fence, she rears up, her front legs come crashing down on the wire fence - and not over the top wire, but stuck between the second and third strand. Tries to break free, cant, and then just accepts she's stuck and stands quietly. My partner got her owner, and after a good hour, we finally got her free. I thank God every day that my boy didn't continue to attack while she was stuck, that she didn't struggle, that the owner was nearby... I could go on. Needless to say, the lessons of horses came rushing back to me, and I certainly won't let it happen again!
