After work today, I picked up two ladies on my street that own horses to help me with feeding Scorpio and for some pointers.
Imagine my surprise when she was running down the street towards my car! My boss had went down to show his son Scorpio, and she ran right out of the gate. It's actually his land that she's on and I warned him at work today that she's becoming aggressive, and is hard to get off the gate. He saw it for himself finally. When I got her three months ago, she was underweight, by about 150 pounds. In the three months that I've had her, she's put on 80 pounds and the vet said she looks good and thinks she'll top out at 750 to 800 pounds. I'm trying not to overfeed her. I'm just trying to get her healthy. One of the ladies in my car jumped out with a short lead that I keep in the front of my SUV, and caught her. She's fine, she got lots of attention in the neighborhood. Once again, another terrifying moment. I just didn't want her to run into traffic which is where she was headed. Thanks y'all so much for your advice and pointing me in the right direction. One other thing, one of the ladies said I need to build her a paddock down by the stall area and that's where she gets to hang out until I learn and I'm able to teach her the right way.
