My 12 year old daughter recently acquired a 10 year old former brood mare that has only had one previous home, the farm where she was born. We have not owned a horse before, but my daughter has ridden for the past 4 years. The mare nickers when she sees my daughter and is generally more accepting of her than of me. I tend to be the "heavy" when she needs to be held to have something done, so I am not her favorite person and she isn't very trusting of me. She is not a cuddly horse and doesn't like to be pet or groomed. She recently had lice and needed a bath, which required my husband and myself to hose and wash her and she reared and bucked the entire time. She has bitten my daughter 3 times around food, so we took all the treats away, which has helped. We are a little afraid of her and she probably knows that. She tries to push her way out of her stall when she wants to get out, and the other day her foot was caught between the door and the stall. The best we could do was hose her foot and put her on stall rest. We can't get near her foot to feel it or really look at it, but she is putting weight on it and it doesn't appear swollen. It is not a comfortable situation for us to not be able to touch her and be fearful every time we have to do something or want to touch her. We do communicate with her former owner, who is able to offer advice and is a calming influence. My daughter also belongs to 4-H and her leader is a great help to us, however, in this pandemic, she can not come to our house right now. We have looked online for advice, but we were hoping to find some support here. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.
