Separating buddy sour horses
This falls into the category "It's always something!" While some issues have been resolved, my husband is still working with his horse listening to him, and so we've had the seller come by to assess the situation.
He wants husband's horse to be taken out alone for groundwork and to be led down the road, etc. in order for him to learn to respect my husband, and to do what he is told. My horse goes absolutely berserk when the other goes out the gate. He runs from one end of the paddock to the other in a frenzied state, kicks the gate, and screams and hollers the entire time he is alone. I try my best to ignore it, but I worry that he is going to hurt himself, and he stresses himself out so much he shoots diarrhea down his legs...yes, really...We've done this 5 or 6 times over the past 3 days (short periods of time-20 minutes, maybe) and I was hoping he would start getting used to it, but not so far. I know a lot of horses do this, but wondering if they ever stop!!
