About a month 5 week's ago, a friend of mine & myself brought home a rising 4 mare. I've been playing with her going back to basics as her owner had backed & turned her away (we got her as owner is away training to be a farrier). Anyway she settled in, but was quite vicious with her teeth but only over the stable door, so we told everyone to just push her away if she tried to bite as we thought she needed her teeth doing. But WHY is there always someone who thinks they know better! This person habitually seems to smack the horses in the yard & is NOT trusted to do anything with them anymore! She happily told me she'd hit this mare because the mare had tried to bite her, needless to say she was unceremoniously told to keep away from this mare. Mares teeth have now been done & she's lots better occasionally the teeth appear but is pushed away then asked to come back & "love" (which is a touch of her tongue on the hand),I taught my big man to do this instead of biting!
