Very interesting how she is learning to trust and interact with you. You are doing good things for this mare.

Kate, I really identify with this post. Our Sovey has some past memories that make him act similar to what you describe. I love that you said, "absolutely not". I have to learn to do that if needed. Don't you just adore watching Miranda's innocence and interest surface when she feels safe enough to investigate things (bubbles)? I can tell you are enjoying your time with her! I bet your daughter feels fortunate to have you as Miranda's caretaker!

Obviously you aren't going to go to the trouble of integrating Miranda into group turnout since she is a short term visitor, but I am curious if you know what she is like with other horses? As in is she shut down with them as well or no? Just curious!

I wonder how she'd do with clicker training - it seems like she enjoys being engaged.

Lily is snatchy with her right hind to, but has gotten much, much better.

Is Miranda cinchy?

Sounds like Miranda knows you have her # . Intersting mare . Hope you are able to post more photos

I have found some similar halter behaviors with my mare. If I turn her out with a halter she is much more compliant, if she has her halter off she seems to figure she is free to do as she pleases, including not wanting to be caught.

I look forward to hearing more about her personality, she sounds a lot like one of my girls.

Kate...I really like the way you figure out what horses are all about and work with them in such positive ways. Miranda will grow a lot with you there to comfort and educate her.

Miranda sounds like a lot of fun! Panama is starting to exhibit more playfulness lately -- I'll blog about it later this evening.

Sounds like we have similar personality types in horses. Bonnie was a rescue. The good friend I bought her from (he matched me with) rescues and rehabs horses. When he is finished they are completely bomb proof anyone can do anything with. However, Bonnie is not a trusting horse and really gives off the impression that she could careless that you are around. It's very strange in that she seems to respect me as anything I ask she does so very willingly and without fear, but she just won't go farther than that, nor will she show me affection.

When I got my PJ years ago, he was very put off by people. (Didn't know about ulcers back then but I bet he had them.) He was super muscle sore. Once I had him acupunctured and he had chiropractic, his personality started to change. He was actually a super sweet horse that really enjoyed human companionship. Sounds as if Miranda may be a lot like him. Patience, and consistent handling will make a world of difference.

Love the messing about with the water. A jolly ball might be a really good diversion.
