I don't know when I first started understanding animals but I think it was when I was a child living on a farm with no brothers or sisters. I had a 17 hand mare that I grew up with. When I came to see her after I was pregnant with my first child she got down on her knee by her self so I could get on her back. Too this day that memory stuns me. Since that time I didn't have horses for a few years. Now retired I inherited four horses. One of the mares was severely abused she has trust issues 12 years later. She's old now and a pasture pet. At present I have a problem with my stallion. Due to a health problem we didn't go on our daily walks or have our Daily grooming. I think it was the walks mostly because we use to walk a 1/2 mile up and back thru the woods to our mail box. When I attempted this after he wouldn't moved stomped his feet and literally pulled me back to his paddock, he's never done that before. I believe he had a temper tantrum.. He's fine now after he smelled my surgical site his attitude changed and he's back to being his sweet self. I believe.e I witnessed a temper tantrum .
