I stand corrected. She threw a fit on her welcome thread about people discouraging her and got ****ed that she was called out for her typing so she deuced out apparently.

Buhbye I say.

I'm sorry, but if someone is going to get that upset because they didn't get the answer they wanted, even if it was the correct one, I'm not upset to see them go. They don't want to learn, and by not learning aren't going to be able to teach. Which is the whole point of HF.

I agree. Corporal just posted a thread relevant to this topic. We all tried to advise the OP not to get this horse because it was not a good "First Horse" for them. I won't go into the stoke of them leaving over this because we don't know for sure that is the case. Could be emergency or illness of some sort keeping them from the GoreWeb and coming here to continue the conversation. I've made enough assumptions this week and don't care to make another one. lol

Yep it happend :) and im gonna say im happy with my decision. ^_^ (i bought the horse. yes.) Call me whatever you want to call me i don't really care. She doesnt have issues shes just really confused her owner only spent 1 time a month with her to ride her, and shes a little torn it took 4 times to load her but its because she hasnt been socialized enough with and i lunged her for the first time yesterday and no problems yet. So far im glad i did get her.

What you don't seem to understand is that "really confused" IS an issue. Anytime a 1,000 pound animal is not doing exactly as you say and when you say to do it, there's a potentially lethal problem. I really hope you get a trainer to help you with this horse as it could literally be the death of you regardless of how much you may love it. It's obvious to every single person that you're outhorsed here.

She does have issues all horses do. Her issue is that she is confused, which as Jellybean pointed out is a big issue. Un-confusing a horse is an often difficult and sometimes flat out dangerous business. I hope you have fun and stay safe. I don't know as much as some folks but I know enough to know that I glad I am not in your shoes.

Oh goodie. On top of everything that's wrong in this post, OP also has aspirations to breed this mare. Yay.

I missed the part about wanting to breed the mare... Hopefully not.

To the OP, now that you have her, you should start a thread about her manners. The biting is not acceptable at any time. Eating or not eating, she can tell if your hand is there. She can feel difference between the food and your hand before the teeth get out.

Please do spend a lot of time with ground work on her. It will pay off in spades - through a respectful, safe horse and one that is easier to work with as training progresses. And remember, it is often little steps...

I'll try to watch for a new thread about her manners towards you. no biting, no pushing, stand quietly, leading at your side, etc. etc.

Also, please only post real-life situations with your mare. Not someone else's and not trying to foresee what might happen. There are enough guesses and interpretations that have to be made when working with horses. We don't need extras thrown in! :)
