My mare and I had been grooming in her outdoor stall. She had her precious hay bag full of yummys, and that is usually all it takes for her to be content. She is thin skinned and does not go in for much grooming..she wiggles and squirms and moves all over the place.Just about as annoying to me, as it must be for her.
This day, I thought she wanted a drink, after about 20 minutes of eating, and normally, even grooming won't make her hesitate to come on back to the stall for more precious hay......not this time.....So I am in the stall, making all the "come on back and get a treat" noises, like forever. And she is in the back part of her pasture the entire time. Absolutely no intention on coming back!
"Uh- maybe she won't see me all the way back here"
"Oh, she will understand...all this 1/2 in grass to eat"
"Oh, er"...she gives me the one eared, straight on look......
