Bad habits

Postby Nesikep » Wed May 10, 2017 9:59 am

We talk about bad habits on cattle all the time, and on horses they're plentiful as well

Here's what I see as a train wreck in the making.. it's cute now, but when the horse is grown it's going to be an unworkable brat, and a dangerous one too

I need some help in the comments.. some people can't fathom how this is bad for the horse in the long run

I agree. Cute now but in a few months could be dangerous.

Horses are harder to break of habits then cows are (sometimes). They better make it stop soon before it gets big. Then that playful kick could break a bone.

that was my thought

If a cow wants her butt scratched, it's one thing, you dont' have to be around them a lot.. If you want to ever use the horse and it's always slamming you into a fence for attention, it's going to get old really quick

If you are dumb enough to teach a horse to do that, you will get what is coming to you eventually... :2cents:

A 7-year-old Varnish Appaloosa mare. She is buddy sour to the point she is reluctant to ride alone and has started to buck. Any suggestions on changing this attitude?

Yes but you ain't gonna like it. Requires advanced riding skills and a dog chain.
