Hi everyone! I am a new member but have been reading posts for a few weeks. Ill try to keep a long story short but pretty much I was looking for a child safe horse for me and my daughter to both be able to ride. When I went to see what I thought was the perfect horse... they opened the doors to the barn and it STUNK so bad!!! Like the stable hadn't been cleaned in ages and there was not enough ventilation. I pretty much didn't think twice about taking her anyways at that point because it felt like a horrible environment. The people were friendly and said they had her for a long time, child safe 4-h camping etc etc. But ever since we got her she has been reactive, somewhat stressed seeming - she had been kept in a stall all the time so we have her out roaming but she doesn't seem happy. I can tell her feet were not kept well and trimmed weird ( low heels/ long toes look off balance) and have a trimmer coming out so maybe she is pain? She keeps her hoof resting and her butt against the fence as for support when she is just chilling. I have massaged her and she seems to feel good when I do that but what else can I do to keep her happy until we are waiting to get her balanced and healthy? Should mention we have drops for eye issues right now, have tried cleaning her crusty mare parts underside, and supplements for potential ulcers... I feel like she is mad at me for being the bad guy who takes care of her... Where do I start with getting her happy while having to do things she doesn't like... and then I can't figure out if I should exercise her much since she does have energy but also seems disrespectful towards me - but I don't know if it is pain or not!! Any suggestions please I don't know what to do!!
